The Women of Grace of 2nd Chance Ministries, wishes to genuinely thank everyone for their overwhelming support and sponsorship. The planning committee worked countless hours into planning and creating this life-changing event. We are truly happy that we were able to put on an exceptional event with more than forty (40) attendees.

The 2017 conference was not meant to be a single event, but a starting point for critical work to impact, transform and to make a difference in the lives of women. We look forward to partnering with everyone again in the future. We know that this would not have been as strong a conference without everyone’s contribution.
