A BIT ABOUT US
Turning Interest Into Action
Precious Angelic Light, Inc. was founded by Wanda Wallace back in July of 2009. Ms. Wallace was in a place where she grew tired of growing statistics of women and girls being homeless, under-served, misrepresented, single mother's raising children, domestic violence/Human Trafficking deaths that continue to rise everyday. Being a single mother herself she wanted to help empower other single mother's to continue to press through to success. Ms. Wallace continued to pray and ask God how can she help women and girls as well as affect change in her community. In May of 2009 in the misted of her prayer time God spoke to her giving the name of the organization, the vision, and the mission to Precious Angelic Light, Inc.
The Precious Angelic Light's vision is to encourage young girls to build their self-esteem, to increase student achievement and attendance and to effectively understand and quickly apply skills for everyday life. It is important to let the young girls know that whatever dream, vision or goal that they want to pursue with a passion can be fulfilled if they put their mind to make it happen.
