Our Programs

Helping Impact the Lives of Single women & Women with children

We encourage every woman to embark on a new and exciting 36-month life changing Journey. You can only achieve a deeper sense of peace, well-being and clarity, if you are ready to change, heal, and grow.

Participants will walk through the twist and turns of their life, receiving internal and external through transformation. We give them the tools for self-motivation and hope to help rebuild their lives, their self-esteem, self-worth, while helping them to sustain the difficult long term process of obtaining self-sufficiency.

We offer other supportive services to strengthen their drive, especially those that have been torn by life’s circumstances. They come to appreciate the value of their core essence and purpose. We assist them in finding the pathway towards a healthier, happier and stable lifestyle.

We help broaden their vision so that they are able to move forward in a new way of being, seeing and living.
