Our Programs

 

 

Under the umbrella of "From Ordinary to Extraordinary" there are 3 programs that are offered to help enrich the lives of individuals that are in a unfortunate situation  as a result of domestic violence. 

 

Self- Reflection

A program designed to help broken and battered women regain self-esteem and self worth through extreme makeovers. We provide extreme makeovers to mothers who have suffered from domestic violence. Unfortunately, some of these women have faced the many hardships of sex trafficking. The purpose of these makeovers are to soften the outer appearance in order to deal with the hardness of what's been embedded on the inside such as, hurt, shame, disbelief, betrayal, self hate, loss of identity and the feeling of being invisible. From Ordinary to Extraordinary goal is to help these women resurface their existence within society. One of the ways that we help is through teaching a skilled trade that will help them become self-sufficient. 

 

birth with purpose

The Birth with Purpose program is designed to help pregnant women/ teens, that has suffered to the hands of their abuser, how to succeed as parents while maintaining a healthy life balance. 

Teen Control

 The purpose of this program is to help at risk girls who have witnessed their mothers' abuse communicate their emotions effectively without anger and avoid being misunderstood due to their inability  to properly express their emotions. We offer workshops and groups discussion to build character, accountability, and perseverance.
