Dr. Tasha G. Davis
CEO/ President

Dr. Tasha G. Davis is the founder of Save One Life Foundation.  Dr. Davis is a single-mother of four; three sons and a daughter. Dr. Davis was born and raised in Cabrini Green and on the Westside of Chicago.  “Though I did not come from a family that established a foundation in education, and career building, at three years old, I possessed an undying love for learning.”  Dr. Davis was a tutored/mentee of The Montgomery Ward Cabrini-Green Tutoring Program that started in the summer of 1965.  In 1970-1972 volunteers from Cabrini Green and Moody Bible Institute joined the program; “this is where my journey to education began.”  “Tutors from Moody Bible Institute were dedicated; they broke cultural/racial boundaries and helped nurture my undying love for learning.  Tutors of Moody Bible and The Montgomery Ward Cabrini-Green Tutoring Program had a mission like that of SOLF which helped create resourceful opportunities for the less fortunate.  When SOLF opens doors to new opportunities for underserved youth, we make a pathway that can help turn a dream into reality.  Tough I was born in poverty; my life was saved because I took advantage of the opportunities that were given to me through education.”

Dr. Davis holds a Doctorate degree in Leadership and Education, Masters degree in Business Administration-Finance, and a Bachelors degree in General Studies, with a minor in Sociology, Women’s Studies, and Non-Profit Organizations.  Dr. Davis served as the Associate Dean of Correctional programs inside of IYC St Charles from 2016-2018 where her calling was to help bridge the gap by offering ways for incarcerated youth to return home, and not recidivate back to prison.  Dr. Davis implemented traditional programs to help marginalized youth return to the community by providing self-sustaining resources (i.e. education, jobs, mentoring, traditional housing, and music enrichment).

He believes a second chance for underserved youth could be the spark needed to create a lifetime of change for generations.
