Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In our Strategic Plan 2021-2023 we have four main goals: Strategic GOAL #1Create local support groups lead by Well Leaders to inspire, educate, support and evangelize WWH within their communities using their language of preference (Available in Spanish, English, Portuguese and Yanesha). These wells use our Bible Studies, books and guides to engage (WWH). Groups can meet at churches, community centers, schools, police departments, corporate business, jail, nonprofits, rehab centers).Strategic GOAL #2 Mass Engagement and reach to evangelize, support, inspire and educate WWH and redirect them to our programs. Strategic GOAL #3Secure and train volunteers, leaders, donors and ministry partners needed to support our mission of educate, inspire, evangelize and support WWH globally.Strategic GOAL #4 Provide a safe and resourceful space (SDP VILLAGE AND GLOBAL WELL) where WWH can visit personally or virtually to be inspired, educated, supported and evangelized.  We want to continue supporting local women as well as international followers. In the future we are planning to have a beautiful space for women without husbands and their families where they can receive help and encouragement before a crisis hits them. We believe that prevention and education is the best way to teach a woman a BETTER WAY OF LIVING. We will continue to use faith to lead women to find their purpose and change their lives. We are certain that we are pioneers in the creation of a formal support group system for Hispanic women without husbands.  Now is also available in English. We know we will impact Central Fl and beyond. We have an engaged international community in all US, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Latin America of  women without husbands asking us for services and help.

Create support groups in communities, schools, churches, jail, houses, etc in Orlando, Central FL, USA and Latin America.Participate in community events.Multiply and train leaders.Use social media to engage women without husbands.Provide free conferences and resources.

Our Founder and Executive Director devotes all her efforts to this ministry and is always networking, creating materials, developing our non profit competence and engaging women to be able to accomplish our mission. In August 2020 we will launch our first  7-series TV Program for Women Without Husbands (in Spanish) Our board members are very capable and very supportive of the mission of this ministry.  We have gained respect and recognition in the local and international community for our work. We have contacts and partnerships in Orlando, USA and internationally.

We are sensitive to the needs of the public we serve. We are certain that many other programs will be created at this organization.  We will continue to create support groups and organizing our processes and programs. Our main concern is the lack of office space and donors.
