Thuggizzle Cares is a 501C3 nonprofit organization started by Phillip Hodge, also known as Thuggizzle, an accomplished rapper and entrepreneur born and raised in San Antonio, Texas.
Due to a childhood of instability and neglect, Phillip Hodge grew up in and out of foster care, due in part to his mother’s history with drugs. Hodge ultimately aged out of the system without finding a forever family, a painful experience familiar to many placed in the foster care system.
Determined to use his experience to help others Hodge started the nonprofit, Thuggizzle Cares. The organization has supported a number of causes since it was first established in 2008. Family Well-Being, a cause that is especially personal to Hodge has opened to provide services.
