OUR VISION

 The vision of Serenity’s Door, Inc. is to intervene and counsel at-risk, abused, economically disadvantaged women through a variety of services, including mentoring, parenting and life-skills training.

 

 We seek to overcome what has become a major obstacle to organizations and social service agencies that provide services to these individuals by creating an organizational paradigm that eradicates the negative attitudes and low-self-esteem that permeate the minds of at-risk women. By intervening and strengthening families, the lives of at-risk and low-income women will be transformed and our community as a result of our efforts will become safer and more economically viable.

 

 Serenity’s Door proposes to accomplish its mission through a variety of programs and services designed to modify negative behavior, improve academic performance, and strengthen families. Serenity’s Door proposes to provide its services in a familiar atmosphere that fosters psychological, physical and spiritual growth. We are designed to be an entrepreneurial and social service workshop prepared to give women the perfect environment for birthing their dreams, visions and ideas. We are hopeful that this program will become a model for replication throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area.  

 

Serenity’s Door has established some clearly delineated timelines to move its business forward. The objectives for Serenity’s Door over the next 12 months are as follows:  

 

 To establish, operate and manage the most comprehensive transitional housing program for women impacted by domestic violence in the Washington Metropolitan Area. To successfully negotiate professional relationships with community-based nonprofit organizations and professional service providers that can offer supportive services to our clients that will enhance the effectiveness of the program. To obtain funding from Corporations, government entities, private foundations and indivdual donors. To provide comfortable, welcoming, safe-haven for women who are in need of transitional housing due to sexual abuse and domestic abuse. To promote spiritual/physical and mental health. To identify and hire qualified companionate volunteers.

 

  To secure sufficient funding, both start up and operational. Create a women & children's only transitional housing facility that provides housing and a variety of life-skills that promote self-sufficiency. Development of a strong Board of Trustees that can offer guidance help with fundraising efforts, and oversee the effective operation of the organization.
