About us

The Rosie Leyakatalie Foundation was founded in 2017 by Keema Leyakatalie Bryson, Sincerely Ward, Melanie Polk, and Monica Valary. This foundation was a direct response to the need that Keema and her co-founders saw during Keema’s own healing journey after losing her mother (Rosie Leyakatalie), and dealing with her own trauma from childhood sexual abuse by a family member. After some research and the encouragement of her husband, Keema was able to find the proper help and treatment through therapy that would allow her to gain a better understanding of herself and the baggage she was carrying all of these years from unresolved trauma. 

While Keema was fortunate to have the proper resources and support needed, she discovered that a misunderstanding about abuse and trauma in all forms is very common amongst the public. The lack of education is very harmful to society as a whole.

Keema and her co-founders set out to create the Rosie Leyakatalie Foundation in honor of  Keema’s mother who lost her battle to cancer in 2013. An organization set out to address all of the complications they have encountered during their healing journey. With the hope of making the process easier for others and paving the way for real changes to occur. We believe that everyone deserves to live a life free of hurt and trauma to truly live a happy life. 

The healing plan

The Cause

Unhealed trauma results in cycles of violence. Time alone does not heal all wounds, much like a physical wound that does not heal, unaddressed trauma can fester. Unless the cycle of violence is broken, they often evolve into complex conflicts. Hurt people hurt people.

The Solution

We know and understand the long term effects of trauma, and we recognize that peace and healing only happen when we are willing to break the cycle. We are dedicated to restoring hope through retreats, fun group activities, and support from certified therapist and survivors of all forms of abuse and trauma.
