The SistaHofSurvivaL program is performed through an 8-week program followed by six months of intensive personal coaching and life-long support. We help women achieve intentional transformation while providing self-awareness support based on #MentalRESET and an holistic approach to individuals as well as teams and organizations.
Domestic Violence is a common problem in the United States affecting an estimated 10 million people every year. As many as one and four women are victims of domestic violence, according to National Institute of Health. Our non-profit organization is dedicated to empowering women and mothers released from prison, affected by domestic violence, homelessness and mental abuse by providing them with comprehensive support and resources to successfully reintegrate into society. Our mission is to be the go-to resource for these women, offering access to basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and education. By addressing the critical challenges faced by these unfortunate instances, we strive to break the cycle of homelessness and create opportunities for their personal growth, independence, and long-term success.
Women who has experienced such a traumatic experience and those leaving prison who are victims of domestic violence face a multitude of challenges, including but not limited to: finding and sustaining employment, family reunification, sustaining healthy relationships, and improving self-esteem.
Today, when women are released, most walk out of the doors with nothing but the clothes on their backs and are expected to find housing, a job, and provide for their families. For many women, no transition or reentry services are available at all. At least 1 in 4 women will become homeless after release, and after being rejected by countless employers and landlords due to their criminal records, more than 70% will give up hope and re-offend. However, this statistic drops to less than 9% for people participating in reentry programs. The long term vision of SistaH of SurvivaL™️ is to be the go-to resource for women being released from incarceration by providing access to the basic needs like food, clothing, housing, education and medical care while assisting them to rebuild their lives through supportive programming that focuses on job readiness, financial literacy, parenting, health and wellness and more.
We push our clients towards successful re-integration back into society, motivated and ready to work.
