OUR YOUNG WOMEN’S AND TEEN YOUNG LADIES’ ANNUAL CONFERENCE:
Young Women’s and Teen Young Ladies’ Conference held annually, is our free 2-fold signature event, where 300 hundreds young women and older women come together, to plant seeds of spiritual enrichment in their lives through our wisdom and experience, presentations, free Bibles, and activities. The multiple vendors participate to spotlight their missions, services, resources, and products that include: health and wellness, education, self-esteem boosting, prevention, ways to volunteer and give, awareness, and hope and healing information. Our program helps stabilize living conditions and stimulates economic-growth opportunities for low and moderate income young women and teen young ladies.
OUR P.E.W.S. MONTHLY SUPPORT MEETINGS: (Projected Pending Program)
P.E.W.S. Meetings held every 3rd Thursday of the month, are designed to spotlight how we are “Stronger Together” in person, as older women and young ladies, by embracing one another through Prayer, Encouragement, Word of God, and Support, (P.E.W.S.). We believe caregivers, students, employees, business owners, mothers, wives, etc., from all walks of life, need to connect and lean on one another, sharing in the P.E.W.S. concept, by overcoming the artificial communication that often leaves a gap for all human senses to be supported and embraced. P.E.W.S. Meetings, offers a monthly speaker who will share powerful and uplifting messages such as, “Are You on the Verge of Tears?” “Are You Afraid?” “Lonely?” “Dealing with Peer Pressure?” “Unable to Cope?” “Emotionally Drained?” “Tired of Covering Up Your Pain?” “Confused? Trying to Fill a Void?” Come find encouragement and support from these topics and more—Mothers, Grandmothers bring your Daughters, Aunts bring your Nieces, Friends and Co-workers join us, one and all!
OUR FREEDOM PRISON MINISTRY:
Freedom, is a Jesus Christ centered evangelism and mentoring ministry to incarcerated offenders for adult women and youthful females. Freedom Prison Ministry is held monthly and provides high energy and inspirational interactive sharing sessions. Its focus is to teach and mentor the women and young ladies on how to be ”Free” in prison through the power of accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Jesus is the one who sets the captives “Free.” Freedom Ministries, help the total person through our “Wholeness Model” by the assistance of our older women’s wisdom, experience, and encouragement. We also teach the ladies problem-solving techniques, conflict resolution training, basic life skills, and self-esteem building. Like the many others we have helped, we desire that these incarcerated women and young ladies learn how to remain “Free” once they are released from prison. We provide job leads, housing counseling and placement, and transportation solutions to rapidly reduce the recidivism rate of returning to prison. Incorporating role playing/practice on “How to Stay Employed” and “How to Obtain and Maintain Your Place of Residence” are also areas of importance. We ultimately want to impart unconditional love, hope, peace of mind, and healing through Christ Jesus, in order to excel in life, in or out of prison, now and in the future.
