Sisterhood Of Grace is a non profit organization that has been supporting women in Tulare County for over 10 years. We are currently working inside The Bob Wiley Detention Facility’s with Programs and with the probation depart as these women transition into the community. We operate an open group service for women to attend where they can receive support and information to achieve a successful start for their reentry into their homes and their communities. We have been contending for transitional housing for women because it is an important need in the lives of many women today. These are mothers and daughters, sisters and friends, who, without help from others would be going back to the same circumstances that ended them up in jail in the first place. 

For the last 4 years I have attended Sisterhood myself, and within the last year and a half I have been going into the jails and coming along side many women, who I’ve seen return many times. I am also a volunteer and mentor at a local recovery home, which I once was a resident. I am involved with many Celebrate Recovery Programs and also do Outreach. My experience has been that there is no place where these women can go that can make a positive, life long difference in their lives. They need a sustained community and housing where they can learn skills, where they can have support groups, where they are able to visit with their children and where they are allowed to build trust and repore with lasting effects upon their lives. 

We need the help of many to make a difference in just one. We need our communities our counties and our states support. God gave me a heart for helping women, broken women, who without love, remain broken. Please sign this petition as a response to wanting to come along side and serve the women who want and need a new vision of life.

God Bless You,

Sister in Christ, Susan Hughes
