Season 5 - Episode 3 - Finding Gratitude Clothed with Strength and Dignity
Tamika Williford is the Founder of “Clothed N Strength,” a Nonprofit for women in transition. She has been in Cosmetology for more than 30 years, where she connects with many Women. Tamika is a New Life Bible school graduate where she studied Missionary & Evangelistic Training and is currently a Lancaster Bible College student pursuing a BA in Biblical Studies. Clothed N Strength has been her vision since she left the Federal Detention Center in 2011. Tamika promised God that one day if it were His will, she would be in a position to help the women in prison. She met countless women from different backgrounds with different stories, all leading them to incarceration. Tamika heard the despair, the sadness, the regret, and the hopelessness they felt. In many cases, their Families gave up on them; they had no resources to climb out of the hole they were in behind bars and now found themselves free and alone. These women had lost their children, their homes, their careers, their jobs, and their hope, But God had a plan! Clothed N Strength, with God's guidance, will return the HOPE and CONFIDENCE that His plan for them is real. They will learn that they have the choice not to return to prison. They need Resources. Empathy. Help. Tamika is there to help!!!
