The Tre's Kids Foundations Story
How We Came To Be
My name is Angela J.Covington-James and I am the Founder and President of The Tre's Kids Foundation. Tre's Kids was founded due to the fact that life threw a punch that literally knocked me off my feet, shattered my world and altered my life and family as I knew it. On August 20,2019 at 10:30 p.m. I found my youngest son Isiah Tytrel James affectionately known to all as Tre in my home deceased. Unbeknownst to us at the time his cause of death was Acute Fentanyl Toxicity. From what we now know, Tre had not been feeling well and was also feeling down and depressed about something that was completely out of his control. Instead of taking it to the Lord in prayer as he had been taught to do or to even go to the doctor. I learned later on that he didn't go to the doctor because he no longer had medical insurance, therefore when someone that he thought he could trust offered him something that was suppose to help him and make him feel better he jumped at the chance that ultimately took his life. Now after losing my son I didn't want to go on with life although I had 3 other adult kids, 4 grandkids and a husband left I just did not want to go on but My Lord and Savior had other plans for me and my life. One day after a long agonizing and restless night and asking God what it was that He was trying to tell me then it came to me Tre's Kids. Tre was 27yrs. old at the time of his passing and he didn't have any kids and the main thing that he wanted in life was to become a father. Since my son was not able to become a father in life, I decided to give him all the kids that I possibly can by helping as many people as I possibly can and once that we at Tre's Kids help someone or a family then they will become one of " Tre's Kids",
