W.I.S.E. WOMEN WELLNESS PROGRAM (W3-P)
The W.I.S.E. Women Wellness Program (W3-P) is a counseling program designed to address
the root psychological issues that have played a part in the current condition of the women in our
Our counseling sessions will be both group-based and one on one. Group-based
counseling allows the participants to see they are not the only one who is dealing struggles from
the past, domestic issues, fears, phobias, and even sexual and/or physical abuse. One on one counseling offers a more private setting. Negative historical thinking patterns that have
developed over time often lead to poor decision making, which leads to bad situations in life.
Our counselor’s objective is to discover and provide solutions that will improve the participants’
perspective on life and raise their self-image.
Almost all statistics show that a good education increases a person’s ability to earn more
income. Women already are paid less than men in most cases, therefore being female and
uneducated or under-educated creates a huge challenge for women desiring to get into the
workforce. They are often left with domestic work or low paying minimum wage jobs that keep
them in poverty.
WISE Training programs will aid our clients with developing the necessary skills to realize and
achieve a rewarding career or pursue entrepreneurship. We aim to assists clients with
pursuing continued education options through partnerships with local colleges and educational
institutes. In addition, our professional development program will provide a structured,
rewarding, and full-filling learning environment for its participants..

Financial health is one of the most critical components of a person’s overall well-being. Poor
financial management has the tendency to bleed over into all facets of a person’s life and can
pose a multiplicity of problems. Many of the ladies in our program are in between jobs and
possibly on the brink of homelessness. Some of them may come from abusive relationships and
have never been the chief breadwinner in the relationship.
Our Financial Management Program focuses on the foundational basics that make a person
healthy financially-speaking. We will partner with The Colts Financial Planning Group and Bank
of America to help teach financial literacy classes and to help establish proper savings and
checking accounts. Some courses to be taught are as follows:
➢ Debt Management
➢ How to Establish & Maintain a Checking Account
➢ How to Effectively Use a Savings Account
➢ Investing 101
➢ Credit Repair
Being a mentor does not mean being someone’s boss. Being a mentor is all about positive
influence. An effective mentor is one that is led by a set of universal principles and practices and
has experience in a particular domain developed from personal history. These principles
produce predictable outcomes.
Many of the women in our program may have experienced some form of negative
circumstances in their lives. Some may have experienced abuse sexually, mentally, physically,
verbally, and/or emotionally. Our Mentoring Program is designed to build a relationship with the mentees, and walk with them as they grow spiritually, mentally, and financially.
Most people just need access to the right person who simply believes in them. People relate to
success stories of those who have overcome similar situations. Our mentors are those who
have themselves overcome surmountable odds. They see in others what someone else saw in
them and now they want to pass on that same inspiration.
We will also partner with leaders in the church and business communities, as well as sports
celebrities to grant the opportunity for women in our program to be inspired by their success
stories and their words of wisdom and personal advice.
We take the talents and skills that are a part of the women in our program and coach, mentor,
and guide them to the front door of a new and improved life. We all need wholesome balanced
relationships in our life, and the mentors from W.I.S.E. are there to help fill in some of the relational
gaps in the lives of the ladies in our program.
