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

Coastal Women’s Forum 2023 President’s Charity

Coastal Women’s Forum December daytime and evening meetings are dedicated to celebrating our 2023 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 provides 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.

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.

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

Thank you to our December 5th Evening Sponsor
