VICTORIOUS WOMEN OF GOD MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL (VWG Ministries International), birthed by Evangelist Vanessa Winbush-Gatlin, is a 501C3 family oriented organization created to inspire, encourage, and strengthen people from all walks of life to fulfill their God-given purpose. It is designed to bridge the gap between desire and destiny. Our bridge transitions families with shattered dreams back to hope, abuse to protection, victim to victor, and from addiction to freedom.
VWG Ministries International include: Redeeming Love Transitional Housing Complex, Crisis Hotline, VWG Finishing School, Annual Back to School Rally, and My Sister’s Closet.
Redeeming Love Transitional Housing Complex is a not for profit organization that provides housing, supportive services, life management skills, and financial education for women and their dependent children. All residents will have access to special services such as: mental health counseling, substance abuse service, assessments, testing, rehabilitative service, family counseling, anger management, developing healthy relationships, communication skills, and parenting skills. Support groups will be offered for non-residents as well at our facility.
Our transitional housing will be provided after a crisis and residents are permitted to participate in the program for a period of six months to one year. In the case of domestic violence victims, transitional housing is the step between emergency shelter and permanent housing. Residents will be provided with guidance, case management, mentoring, and role modeling in order to help each woman create personal order for herself and her children.
The Crisis Hotline (1-88 VWG CARES) offers 24 hour trained staff and volunteers to operate our telephone services with a goal of providing effective answers and immediate help. Each caller is addressed with care and sensitivity. Our phone staff is skilled and caring. They will talk with our callers about their concerns, help them sort through their feelings, explore coping strategies, make appropriate referrals for additional assistance and provide spiritual guidance.
