Meet our Leadership


I Matter Too was founded 8 years ago, in 2007 by Stacia Hepburn.  At the age of 25 yrs old, Stacia made the decision to turn her life over to Jesus Christ.  7 years later, I Matter Too was formed.Stacia

Stacia is currently serving as Board Chair and general oversight of all operations and volunteers I Matter Too®.  She is a succesful business woman having started and led several for and nonprofit businesses, and is driven by a heart to help abused and severly neglected children.  After growing for most of her life with an abusive stepfather, she recognized the need for all children to have a loving same gender role model that can help with education, spiritual and emotional needs. Stacia says, “After recieving Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour at the age of 25, my life changed drastically.  I traded drugs, alcohal, and destructive relationships with others and self for a new life filled with a new spirit, new compassion and desire to live a healthy and fulfilling life in Jesus.” I Matter Too is now giving back to children to fulfill the Great Commission found in the Bible to “go out and make disciples.”  It is doing that through one on one mentorship that teaches each child based on their specific areas of need in spiritual, behavioral and academic areas.
