What is next for you in 2020?
Preparing for the opening of the Breathe safe house. This house is for battered woman with children and teen parents. It is my mission and vision to create a safe place where woman can take their super woman capes off and breathe. The house is schedule to be open this fall 2020. We are able to house three families rent free for 3 months. The woman will be able to stay there up to twelve months. I am planning to provide real help and answers by providing, counseling, mentoring, training, workforce development, networking and a community of woman who will be built up from the inside out. When they leave the breathe house they will be leaving whole, delivered, set free, and equipped to live a stress free life as a result of services and resources received. We are always in need of donations. The breathe house is supported through my 501c3 not for profit organization and gracious donors.
I decided to create informational self help products to support the breathe house and the woman and children who will be staying there. All proceeds from my books, events, and apparel line benefit that work.
