Tried By Fire, Inc. / My Sister’s House

Coastal Women’s Forum 2022 President’s Charity

Coastal Women’s Forum December daytime and evening meetings are dedicated to celebrating our 2022 President’s Charity – Tried by Fire, Inc.

Tried by Fire, Inc. is a non-profit organization “Committed to Helping Women Through the Tough Times.” A key goal of the outreach ministry is helping women to start over post incarceration. Tried by Fire partners with other agencies, churches, organizations and individuals to provide counseling,
education, training, housing, employment, criminal justice compliance and other basic needs.

A hallmark project of Tried by Fire is My Sister’s House, a home that will provide temporary shelter for up to eight women in a monitored, supportive environment after their release from prison. My Sister’s House is the realized vision of a village of dedicated women and men who are committed to helping
women rebuild their lives toward a positive and productive future. It will celebrate its preview in mid-December.

Tried by Fire Chief Vision Executive, Bonita Burney Simmons, and Volunteer and Resource Coordinator, Deedra Durocher, both members of Coastal Women’s Forum, will tell the story and vision of Tried by Fire. They will be joined by women who share compelling insight into how their lives and the lives of
their families and communities have been enriched by Tried by Fire volunteers and partners. Their stories are amazing examples of Coastal Women’s Forum’s 2022 theme of Embracing Empowerment Together.

Each presentation will focus on a different chapter in the Tried by Fire story. The evening meeting will feature Cathy Price, who will share her unique post-incarceration journey from darkness to light.

Please join us for our evening meeting on Tuesday, December 6, at 5:30 PM, at The Chelsea Restaurant
to learn more about Tried by Fire, Inc.

In keeping with our tradition, there will be an opportunity to provide a financial contribution at the meeting and through our website,
