"Quest for Success" Honoree
A product of the Dallas community, Founder Phillipa Williams was impassioned by the kindness shown to her as a young single mother during times of financial challenge. While raising her young son years ago, acts of love from loved ones and even strangers in the community not only allowed her to rebound, but instilled a sense of hope and a desire to pass the power of love on to other women in general, and young mothers in particular. As a result, she developed a grass-roots effort to address the realities of childhood poverty called “ilooklikeLOVE.”
Phillipa’s experience is extensive in operations and faith-based leadership. Armed with over 30 years’ experience in service to the community as a leader, trainer, strategist, mentor, and teacher, she transitioned in 2015 with the birth of ilooklikeLOVE. Because of her work and commitment to the underserved, Phillipa was awarded the Quest for Success Award by the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce in 2020, and appointed by Governor Greg Abbott to the Texas Nonprofit Council in October 2021.
Through ilooklikeLOVE, Phillipa continues to inspire and equip women to embrace their identity, cultivate their authenticity, and build personal strategies towards personal and financial sustainability.
