Who We Are

We Are Survivors Foundation evolved from the personal experiences of the founder Wanda McKinley.  December 2014, her heart was compelled to begin the process of starting an agency to help other women like herself. At the time, although she was not ready to share her story, she knew in order to heal herself meant working with others who were experiencing what she had come through. She knew how it felt to be afraid and ashamed and she knew that there were other women out there that were hurting or possibly in danger and seeking help.

Mission: Our mission is to provide a stable environment for abused and battered men, women and children in providing temporary shelter, counseling and provide employment training. We want to help men and women transition from abusive situations to being self-sufficient in society.

Vision:  To empower men and women so they can and will survive and thrive in society on their own and to uplift them and provide them a new life, a new prospective of normalcy by enhancing and elevating their lives.
