The LoveLife Foundation will provide Destyni with school supplies and personal care package; and WWITOS Foundation will present her with a $500 books stipend and 3-Care Packages per year for her 4-year college experience through their Education Award Program. Both organizations are dedicated to improving the lives of women, children, and families in low-income status, and impacted by societal issues such as domestic violence and homelessness,
Destyni, a resident along with her family at DC General Family Shelter, has a scholarship for tuition to Potomac State College, but still needed help with additional expenses. “When we saw her story on Facebook, we knew WWITOS Foundation could help. We immediately took action to locate and connected with Destyni and her case worker,” said Tawawn Lowe, CEO of WWITOS Foundation. Destyni Tyree is why the WWITOS Foundation was created. We seek to partners with organization within the community to support women and girls seeking higher education as a means to achieve personal, professional and economic success.
“We often hear so much negative news about what is or is not happening in the communities, we serve. We hope that this story will inspire other young girls and women in similar situations to know their lives matter, and to believe help is out there.” Representative from both organizations will be available for interviews, along with Ms. Tyree before and during their presentation on July 23rd held at DC General Family Services at 1900 Massachusetts Avenue, SE (Main Building) Washington, DC 20003.
