PEMS Healing

4wks (20 hrs)

We are all created in three states, mind body and soul. When all three states are aligned you experience the Unifed Self and when these states are not aligned you experience the Divided Self. Youths will learn to focus on their individual stories and see why those events have progressed in the manner in which they have. They will learn a new method to healing one’s mental, emotional and physical state of existence. They will also learn specifically which emotions are being conflicted and how to control those emotional outburst and behavioral problems. Youths will learn to except their own identity, image and iconic self as well as learn of the gifts they possessed at creation and how to make them best work for them.

Me with my daughters

A post shared by WCUAV (@wcuav) on

Women and Children United Against Violence was founded in 2010 by Katrina Stradford. The inspiration for starting the organization came one day when her daughter was assaulted by a group of neighborhood girls. Her daughter was not damaged physically from the incident but as a mom it hurt her spirit to think a group of girls would purposely target her daughter for no reason. Mrs. Stradford, herself, had prided herself for being a great role model within the community.

Mrs. Stradford didn't allow the event to distort her opinion of others but paid attention to the signs  she was given to help others. She turned a negative into a positive and didn't let the actions go unnoticed. She said, "It was as if a higher power was attempting to get my attention".

To put an end to the current epidemic of violence she went through rigorous training and conducted endless research just to be able to reach the youth beyond the knowledge she already had known.

Katrina Stradford is also a self-published author of more than 3 books whose life work is based on the Development of the Soul. She is giving the youth an in depth look at their design and giving them the power to choose constructively a better choice other than what they know. All are welcome to be a part of this positive chain reaction.

Women and Children United Against Violence is a non-profit organization with a mission to help the youth deal with their negative emotions and find a better alternative to the common distractions they face daily within their lives. A friend of hers once said, “The youth are our future and we need to embrace them and give them the tools they need to become successful adults”.


About Us

Our Programs

Anti-Childhood Bullying

2wks (10 hrs)

A child's first love and teachers are its parents and when that child's needs, wants, values and desires are not being met they will lash out in unrewarding ways to get the results they want. If they can't get their parents attention at home, then they will get their attention while at the school. It's not about supplies, books or of the teacher being mean and not liking them. Bullying is the result of ignored emotions at home. School just happens to be the place to lash out. In this program, youths will learn of the dangers to childhood bullying and gain some useful tools to combating the effects of the negative situations.

Personality Identification

8wks (40 hrs)
As people, we are forced to participate in a social world before we have even gained simple insight to understanding of ourselves as a creation and the reasons behind why we do what we do and like what we like. Our world around us is constantly changing and at times its hard to keep up. In this program, youths will learn about the development of their inner world which is also known as the soul. They will learn how and why they function independently as a whole. It is my belief that until you learn who you are, you can't know where you are going. Youths will be educated to the uniqueness of their design and learn why they interpret situations so personally.
