Women’s Wellness Foundation provides an alternative to recidivism for women leaving incarceration by addressing housing, employment and basic needs, while offering programs which focus on healthy relationships, education and life skills, providing a bridge to a new way of life.
Partner with us in opening Dinami House, a Faith Based Recovery Home for Women. Join our Go Fund Me campaign to raise $25,000 to purchase and operate our home. No amount is too small.
Read one woman's story.....
I felt like I was invisible.
I never got noticed. Even in school, I was the last one picked for teams. I didn't date; didn't attend my high school prom or even my graduation. No one even noticed. So when a handsome man finally did, it felt good. He showered me with compliments, called often and seemed like a dream come true.
Until he introduced me to drugs.
I was a naïve middle class single mother. I didn't even know what crack cocaine looked like. I definitely didn't know the powerful addictive chokehold it would have on me. I lost my family, my job, my home....everything. Then I ended up in prison. Twice. Because I didn't learn the first time that it's more than just not using drugs, it's having a strong support system, self-confidence and the belief that there's hope. Its because of my faith and the people who believed in me and inspired me that I've been in recovery for 8 years, have my own home, a good job and spend time with my family.
