Sharyn’s Bio

Sharyn Abbott is the founder of UBU and spent 8 years in the Fortune 500 arena in a sales position. She has owned three entrepreneurial companies and spent the better part of 23 years as an entrepreneur.

Sharyn founded Youth Enterprise in 1977; was on the Board of Directors for American Diabetes Association and Easter Seals; and did fund raising for Rubicon Homes for abused children throughout the 90s.

Sharyn created the idea for UBU after her adopted brother became terminally ill in 1998. She became his primary health care advocate and through the ten years of his care became aware of the number of children living on the streets because of the stories he told about being in foster care.

UBU is designed to take children off of the streets and empower them to live the fulfilling life they deserve through unique educational and wellness programs.
