Our Diamond in the Rough Program:
Our Hidden Rubies Program:
Our goal is to help troubled teens achieve academically, who have the exceptional potential to succeed. Our 12-month program will give them the commitment to follow through on a path to adulthood with a sense of pride and commitment. We help to transform the lives of youth who lack the confidence or self-esteem in the field of personal growth and development. The true beauty of a diamond can only be seen after the cutting and polishing process. We push one to their full potential whether they have been homeless, imprisoned, or troubled. When our youth fall into unfortunate circumstances The Virtuous Woman, Inc. is here to help. Annually we award one high school student residing in a low income household with a scholarship of $250 for their academic efforts.
Our Royal Diadem Program:
We have teamed up with Panera Bread help families in need. Our goal is to alleviate hunger by targeting veterans, seniors, and low-income families. Our programs will target population groups to provide housing and nutrition through emergency food programs, congregate meal sites, and food box programs. We believe by helping to provide food for those in need, they will become successful at providing better nutrition for their families. We will also have community programs for budgeting and credit counseling, while offering utility grants for those who are 55+ in low-income communities. We give away two annual grants of $250 to two low income high school seniors who have achieved a 3.5 GPA or better during their senior year of high school.
Our Cardinal Virtues:
Prudence-Is the ability to judge between actions at the appropriate time. Prudence requires us to distinguish between right and wrong.
Justice-The perpetual and constant will of rendering each one his right. Justice is the virtue that helps us decide what needs to be done.

Our goal is to help single mothers achieve higher education, career development, family dynamics, and stress management. Our program includes domestic violence advocacy programs, while providing emergency housing and support services for battered women. We understand that diamonds sometimes get dirty and need cleaning, but rubies never lose their luster. The Virtuous Woman, Inc. is here to help them work to better themselves spiritually, mentally, physically, & financially. Annually, we award one low income female with $1000 scholarship towards their college tuition to return back to school.
Our Trailblazer Achievers Program:
Our goal is to transform the lives of male and female inmates by unlocking their entrepreneurial passions, education, and mentorship. We will use faith driven values to help prevent inmates from returning to jail or prison. we constructively redirect inmate talents by equipping them with values-based entrepreneurial training, while enabling them to productively re-enter society. Upon release we would like to provide transitional housing, training, and resume’ development. Annually we try to give a scholarship of $500 to a convicted felon in need of financial aid in order to return to school.
