Help Keith Stephenson Rebuild His Life

Keith Stephenson is no stranger to overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Despite a difficult upbringing in South Los Angeles and battling with physical disabilities, he still managed to become a successful entrepreneur. He opened his business in 2006, selfunded and vowed he would use his success to create opportunities for others, and he made good on that promise. Through civic engagement and leadership, he paved the way for new leaders by creating blueprints for innovative systems and pouring his resources into his community. He advocated on behalf of those whose voices were not yet loud enough to make meaningful impacts. 


Keith was accustomed to jumping hurdles. But he never expected that years after he finally successfully launched his business, he would be fighting just to reopen its doors.  


In 2020, during a temporary closure to become Covid-19 safe and compliant, Keith’s business sustained two burglaries. These crimes crippled the business, looting it of all of its merchandise and some electronics and irreparably damaging the storefront’s structure and interior. Keith now finds himself immersed in an arduous fight with his insurance company to get his business back up and running. 



With his back against the wall, his spirits and morale remain higher than ever. Keith is confident that not only will he make a comeback, but that his success and ability to continue to do good will be magnified. But for now, the tables have turned, and Keith now seeks support and love from his community. In the same way Keith has consistently given to his community, it is with a humbled and grateful heart that he now asks that his community help support him to reopen his business and get back to serving the people.  


 

By strengthening Keith and building him back to be the pillar in the community that he has been for the last fifteen years, Keith is certain he will be able to reciprocate the love and support tenfold.
