Welcome to LifeSigns!
LifeSigns is a non-profit organization that has been created to offer hope and help in giving enormous opportunity to women 16 years of age and up that have the desire and the drive to change their circumstances. LifeSigns is for women who want to step up and step out of their current life style and create a better life for themselves. These women will not be looking for a handout but for a hand up, one that will provide guidance through coaching and mentoring, preparation for a better career with continued education, career, life, and financial skills, and finally being given support and encouragement needed as she takes the necessary steps to begin a new way of life. The people at LifeSigns are committed to the success of the women and for most it will be the first time that they feel a sense of hope and solidity in the road that they are traveling down.
The expectation of the program is to promote women and empower them with the personal and professional skills to establish them as a valuable, employable resource within our community. It is anticipated that many will continue into higher education or become gainfully employed within existing businesses while others will have the desire to initiate small entrepreneurial businesses throughout the East Tennessee region.
It is with deep gratitude that we acknowledge receiving the Dollar General Literacy Foundation Adult Literacy Grant!

Can you imagine…
We can help....
From the Founder of LifeSigns
I would like to take a moment and speak from my heart to yours. For some time now I have had the dream of starting a non-profit organization for women who are looking to help themselves up and out of their current circumstances. Our research shows that there is a growing trend in the number of women who are spiraling down into a life of despair and discouraging statistics. Many women who are struggling financially or who are living within a controlling and abusive environment are not pursuing higher levels of education or career skills, limiting them to what career choices are available to them, creating a vicious cycle - one in which the woman feels trapped and destined to live. Young women are living as they witnessed their mothers live and their mothers before them. This trend has created a tremendous need. LifeSigns offers hope and help for a brighter future.
Our main focus at LifeSigns is helping women move up and out of their current situations and create a better quality of life for themselves. With knowledge comes empowerment. Empowerment to strive for something higher, better and more rewarding. The program has been created to help women who are truly committed to helping themselves. These women are looking for an opportunity - one that will provide guidance through coaching and mentoring, preparation for a better career with continued education, career and life skills and finally being given support and encouragement needed as they take the necessary steps to begin a new way of life. Together they will gain the results they need to live life as a contribution to themselves, their families and their community around them.
Please spend some time here and continue to look and learn more about us. We would love to talk to you if you have any questions about how we operate or who can be a part of the program. Or, join us in being part of the solution of empowerment and help us break the cycle…
The women who participate in LifeSigns today will set the new standard for others and for their daughters to carry on tomorrow.
Blessings of peace, purpose and prosperity to you,
