We are "cultivating change" in women that are being released from the local, state and federal system, as well as, doing community service by providing safe transitional housing alternative and teaching life-skills.
The heart of Destiny Reached Thru Empowerment
Our life-skill classes are designed to empower our clients to be the best they can be no matter what they are going through or have been through. No longer do they have to hold onto their history at the expenses of their destiny.
Destiny Reached Thru Empowerment receives donations to be a blessing to children of incarcerated parents at Christmas time. We have been able to give children toys, books, clothes, food. Thank you each year for your support.
~Trust Your Path~
There are 200,000 women behind bars and more than one million on probation or parole. Many of these women struggle not only with substance abuse, but mental illness, and histories of physical and sexual abuse. Few get the clinical assistance/treatment they need. These women are the nurturers of our families and they initiate growth in our children as well as the glue to our families. Our families are lost without our moms, sisters, aunts, grandmothers etc. Reinstating these women brings balance back to our families and society.
How they fare on the outside, and how communities fare in absorbing these ex-inmates, is a topic of growing concern because very little if any rehabilitation has been given as well as no preparation has been put in place prior to their release. Well DRTE is doing something about it. We believe that no one’s past mistakes should dictate their future
In our fundraising efforts, DRTE needs your help in making sure these women and their children have the necessary resources to focus on becoming productive citizens in the community. We are requesting monetary donations for the following: clothing, personal hygiene items, food, computers, printers, tables and chairs, teaching supplies, backpacks, transportation and books
On behalf of Founder Tracie Barnes, thank you in advance for supporting our fundraising efforts. Together, we will cultivate the greatness that is within these women, men and young women by helping them obtain a self-sufficient life style.
