ILYMTYLM Board Members and Team

Stacy Schmitt

Stacy is the founder and president of "I Love You More Than You Love Me" (ILYMTYLM). For the past eight years, she has proudly served as a street minister among the homeless community. Stacy has collaborated with various organizations and churches to make a real difference in homeless communities. Previously, she was part of "HairStream Ministries," which provided free haircuts to homeless individuals. Known for her wisdom and kindness, Stacy would sit down with individuals, discuss their life struggles, and share her faith.

When COVID-19 hit and lockdown was issued, Stacy had time to reflect on her mission and passion. With God's help, she decided to start a new chapter of HairStream Ministries, which eventually became ILYMTYLM. The organization's name was inspired by a meaningful childhood game she used to play with her brother. Stacy wanted to teach people about the importance of healthy, nutritious food and how it can positively impact the body and mind. She is a firm believer in nourishing individuals and providing them with the resources they need to thrive. Stacy is grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of those around her and is dedicated to her mission with ILYMTYLM.


Tamela has dedicated her life to serving seniors and the homeless. She started working for Meals on Wheels at Sacramento City College and was promoted after a year to a site with challenging individuals called "table 14". Tamela spent most of her time there, trying to show love and compassion to the six homeless men who came in to eat five days a week. Over time, Tamela's efforts paid off, and the men at table 14 began to appreciate her presence. Tamela was promoted to recovery at home, but she never forgot about the gentlemen at table 14 and continued to periodically check in on them. Her work with seniors and the homeless has given her a unique perspective on the importance of showing kindness to those who may feel neglected or forgotten.She is greatful and excited to be apart of ILYMTYLM’s mission.
