The Delores Foundation, Inc.

Helping Others Pursue Excellence (HOPE)

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.

As an orphaned child, Rev. Carter understands the pains of the broken and lowly of heart. She believes that this understanding has given way to the vision of TDF. Her compassion for others enables her to hear and understand the cries of the hurting and to deliver to them words of comfort and healing.

Rev. Carter’s experience as a Christian Counselor for New Horizon’s congregational care ministry of St. Peter Baptist Church, has offered her many opportunities to see the Lord transform lives as she allows Him to love through her. She has seen the difference renewed faith can make. This experience has increased her passion for the vision—her desire to see lives become whole again, and to see men, women and children grow stronger spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
