Lisa Kodimer is the co-founder of the non-profit organization, Connecting a Caring Community. CCC grew out of Lisa’s long history of changing people’s lives. After 17 years of owning her successful boutique, Kodi & Co., in the San Fernando Valley, Lisa closed shop and found her real purpose…GIVING BACK! She has taken what she learned as a businesswoman--trust, loyalty, determination and the ability to connect with others--into the world of philanthropy. Lisa also founded Good Deeds in Motion, with the inspiration coming from years spent volunteering in the community, and developing Westhills Champions, a special needs baseball program that first started as her son’s bar mitzvah project. Westhills Champions Baseball engages over 50 special needs children, inspiring over 150 volunteers and others within the community.
Lisa’s mentoring, infectious energy and passion for giving has changed the lives of many. A native of Woodland Hills, Lisa is married to Kory “the boy next door,” who she has known since the age of two years old. Together, they have two beautiful teenage boys, Kole and Kamden, who keep them very busy and who are continuing her legacy of giving back.
