The nationwide initiative was founded Holly Jackson who overcame homelessness and poverty. She knew first-hand how it felt to be without a home and the necessities needed. In November 2018, Holly started the Walls of Love campaign to give back to her local community in Cleveland. Since then, 1,020 Walls of Love have been placed that provide necessities and winter gear on walls within regions of poverty.
