OUR COMMUNITY VISION is based on the belief that...
Together we will transform fears into freedom and trials into testimonies. Our fears limit our vision and become a barrier to our potential. If given the tools to address adversity, and a safe ‘container’ to process trauma, the journey to healing can begin. The journey is valuable but believing in your abilities and self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter pathway. Then and only then can your adverse experiences become a platform for triumph!
Our relationships with communities, provide us with the ability to effectively bridge difference across a spectrum of fields. WE’RE DIVINE’s unique service composition supports individuals and businesses seeking assistance with building their internal capacity to address intercultural conflict, increasing community relations and becoming culturally reflective.

Sister to Sister, is part of our youth outreach services for young women up to 24 years of age. Many of our young women have experienced abandonment, grief, loss, and trauma. Sister to sister assists young woman with gaining a sense of control over their lives, so they become the narrator of their lives.
“If I can control my narrative I can control my destiny! If I can control my destiny I can choose my pathway to get there. If I have choices, then I have an opportunity to re-narrate my life!”
Sister to sister believes in empowerment through building a positive sense of self. Each participant will be matched with an individual or group sister that will provide mentoring, career development and sisterhood.

Re-New Me, our prison outreach service, goes beyond typical reentry programming. Our unique method incorporates culturally reflective healing-based support that focuses on life (re) building strategies for incarcerated parents.
Our service delivery addresses historical, intergenerational and community adversity that individuals have experienced which contributed to their high-risk behaviors. We temporarily step back from the behavior that led them to prison to assist individuals with gaining a deeper understanding of ‘what happened’, why have they responded in such a way and where do they go from here?
Reaching beyond re-entry starts the journey to healing from the trauma before, during and after incarceration. It gives incarcerated parents an opportunity to leave behind their “previous self’.
“I needed the old me to die, so I could then re-birth the new me!”
“I didn’t know how to address the questions my 3-year-old had about her dad being gone. She asked why he couldn’t come home, so I told her daddy is living in his special castle for a while. I know she wouldn’t understand his prison term.”
