About Us

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. 
-Isaiah 61:3

The mission of the Ministry is: to provide spiritual, physical, and practical training to women and young girls, as well as, emotional and social support, to ensure they reach their divine purpose and destiny.  The workshops and training provided to women empowers them to make the changes in their lives that would otherwise be difficult to accomplish.  It may encompass them changing careers, basic living skills, or even their mental status that promotes a balanced living of health and wellness.  

We encourage women to release the power bestowed within us all.  Our goal is to work with women and girls in developing a plan to channel the women visions and skills in a manner that allows them to walk in an attitude of “Excellence.” As 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the tax deductible contributions allow the Ministry to provide these services to the community.
