Rebecca Hamm was born and raised in the county of Grande Prairie. She grew up on a farm with three other siblings. She has always had a passion for helping people, but recently she started to contemplate how she could help others, specifically children, who suffer due to loss, trauma, poverty.
In 2015 she and her husband adopted a little boy from the Grande Prairie area. Their journey has taken them on paths of hardship, joy, healing, and beauty. Their eyes were opened to the need that exists for all kids, whether in foster care, adoption, or touched by extreme poverty to feel worthy & valued. After drawing up a rough plan for an idea to meet this need, she invited her dear friend Ruth Hamm to join her on the journey of building My LuvPak.
Along with being a mom, Rebecca works part time at the retail stores she co-owns, and is quickly becoming a full-time executive of My LuvPak. Her passion is to see every child in need, given hope, love, and a sense of self worth through their LuvPak mission.
Ruth was born and raised in a farming community in Saskatchewan. Her parents being long-time Foster Parents, Ruth had numerous siblings over the years; Some that stayed for a time, and others that still remain.
After raising 6 children of her own(4 of whom are adults now), Ruth became a licensed foster parent and began taking children into her home.
Besides being a foster mom, Ruth works fulltime in finance with a local organization, as well works internationally with a project that supports the development of businesses for single mothers in Uganda.
My LuvPak is part of Ruth’s passion to see at-risk childrens trauma & loss addressed not only from a practical place, but also an emotional & psychological place.
