Our Story

The Delores Foundation, Inc.(TDF) was originally conceived in the heart of its founder, Rev. Vanessa B. Carter, on January 1, 2002. The Lord gave her a vision to begin a healing and transition ministry for women and children. The ministry’s focus would be to assist them in rebuilding their lives, by first, providing them a safe haven where they can be loved and nurtured; and then teaching them the skills they need to live productive lives. ...more
