We began in 2016, approximately 22 years after our Founding CEO, Sonya McKinzie walked away from her abuser. After enduring years of physical and emotional abuse, Sonya broke her silence by writing her first book, Heaven Rain on Me. Her vision created a statewide support network for survivors to connect to address their emotional and mental health needs post-trauma.
The Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is led by survivor-volunteers who serve victims, survivors, and families affected by domestic violence. We understand the unmet needs of survivors and have developed a unique organization that strives to bridge the gap in services between emergency shelters, direct service providers, government agencies, academic institutions, businesses, and the community.
Each program we offer is designed to empower, educate, and fulfill the needs of survivors and their families through our unique connective resources.
The Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation complements the services crisis shelters offer and assists in decreasing the number of times victims return to abusive partners. Recovering after abuse can be a lifelong journey. We are committed to addressing healing after the crisis by providing a platform for survivors to connect, speak out, and advocate against abuse.
McKinzie went on to write a book about survivors of trauma, specifically abuse which inspired her to build a brand focused on coaching, inspiring, and uplifting others with a focus on encouraging others to move beyond surviving and soaring through thrivership. In 2019, Sonya McKinzie officially united the organization's purpose and efforts with the her trademark ThriveHER™ into the universe as a means of defining and empowering survivors to focusing on thriving!
