Hope’s Crossing began its journey nine years ago on a mission to Inspire, Encourage and Create Hope in the lives of women and families so they can end the cycle of incarceration reconnect with their children and to become personally and economically sustainable. This mission is centered on the foundation of core programs and services necessary to break down barriers, engage a strong and flexible support system, all while empowering women to be independent leaders of their own life.

A Creation of the Creator
Designed to bring joy, designed to give love, designed to bring happiness.
Designed to exist and emulate the beauty God sent from above,
designed to encourage, designed to mold.
Designed to give from the heart and to life with her soul, for to give is the way of God, The way of the world.
Kimberly, she is strong and determined, she is great, she is bold. She is never harsh, she’s always gentle, she’s willing to lend an ear. She’s never judgmental, she’s never mean, her heart is pure, she’s genuine, and she is one of the millions, once lost and unsure.
She’s a friend, a mother, a daughter, a wife, and a queen. She’s a light in the darkness; she stands strong because now she believes.
She is a Creation of The Creator.
My mission in life is to support and mentor others that have been or are in the same situation.
I know the difficulties they are facing and will be a
positive influence that they need.
I am a kind and generous individual. I enjoy life to the fullest because of my Spirituality.
I believe that nothing happens by accident.
My God has given me the best gifts, my God has made me resilient and able to get through life’s toughest battles.
