About our Founder
The I Did Something Good Today Foundation (IDSGT Foundation) was founded by Kimberly Lewis in 2018 to join the fight against social isolation within the older adult population.
Since the age of 14, Kimberly has worked in her community, assisting the homeless and older adults as a Police Explorer for the Compton Police Department. As a young adult, she had a career in both the legal and entertainment fields, but always made time to help others.
Kimberly has directed multiple programs, including several AB109 programs and homeless women’s shelters, and has worked for numerous agencies. During her stint at the women’s shelter, she witnessed people dumping their mothers and grandmothers at the shelter simply because they did not want to be bothered. These unbelievable acts are what motivated Kimberly to found this organization.
Kimberly also worked for the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority and left her position to run the foundation full-time. Her passion is to assist our older adults by helping to combat social isolation and to also assist with the lack of their vital needs.
Kimberly currently sits on the Los Angeles County Older Adult Commission, where she looks forward to continuing her advocacy for seniors.
