Leading in Love was originally a program offered by a New Jersey nonprofit, From Jersey with Love. The program was created by Quadai Palmer in response to a void in resources for community leaders in the pre-Pandemic society. While hosting a luncheon for leaders, she realized there was a need in the community for a leadership focused program to offer leaders a safe place to share their needs and to find resources to meet them.
Quadai along with her co-founder, Curtis Moreland, spent years building the nonprofit without proper mentoring or even leadership development. From her experience and hearing the stories of other agencies, Quadai decided to create a program especially for the leaders of communities. A resource for leaders to be able to get the training, mentoring and day-to-day assistance they may need to keep serving their communities. To date, Leading in Love has served over 50 agencies through mentoring, training and resource procurement over the last 5 years. They maintain 15 community partnerships and offer a plethora of resources.
