In March 2018, A Woman’s Worth Project was birthed by Nerika Jenkins in conjunction with her own experience as a returning formerly incarcerated female back into society. There are many obstacles that incarcerated females faced after being released from prison such as not being able to quickly receiving and access to their photo identification card, not having enough money to survive on a day to day basis and having no place to live after their release. A Woman’s Worth Project is the liaison for all women will suffer many obstacles upon their release.
A Woman’s Worth Project became a nonprofit organization after confirmation from God that this thought and passion should become a reality. A Woman’s Worth Project aims to help women financially, socially, and spiritually by conducting mental health counseling, life, and professional training skills along with a healthier way of life from their own life experiences to what society says a law-abiding citizen should be.
Through A Woman’s Worth Project individual communities, organizations, schools, and outside resources, women, and girls that were incarcerated can be all they desired to be while embellishing their self-worth. Transitional housing can help reduce recidivism and costs less than the full costs of an incarcerated woman.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
A Woman's Worth Project mission is to empower women to utilize tools and knowledge that will help sustain their life after transitioning from prison to society while embracing their self-worth.
Support women in elevating from a life of dependency to self-sufficiency.
