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 groups and organizations.
Domestic Violence is a common problem in the United States affecting an estimated 10 million people every year. As many as 1 and 4 women are victims of domestic violence, according to National Institute of Health. Our non-profit organization is dedicated to empowering women released from prison and/or who has been through similar traumatic experiences by providing them with comprehensive support and resources to successfully reintegrate into society in order to access basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and education. With these critical challenges, we strive to break the cycle of homelessness and create opportunities for their personal growth, independence, and long-term success.
Today, when women are released whether from prison or her abuser, 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 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 or return to their abuser. 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 that go-to resource for such women 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.
