Angels in Progress (AIP) is a local non-profit which helps transform the lives of young women who are homeless or aging out of foster care to be stronger, smarter and independent. AIP works with these young women to discover their true identity through workshops so healing and freedom is successfully reached.
AIP is not just a shelter and provision for women, it is an emotional and educational program.
“We provide workshops that assist young women in the process of journeying from homelessness or foster care into healthier independent living. The workshops teach basic life skills as well as valuable truths about identity and destiny. The workshops are designed to provide a holistic approach to dealing with issues of the body, mind, heart, and spirit,” said founder Kimberly Shane.
“Not only are these workshops vital for these women’s growth but it also fosters relationships and community development,” said Shane. “Volunteers partner with these women through mentoring, counseling, teaching, workshops to create an environment where they can learn from each other, resulting in their community. It is the hope of Angels in Progress that these young women will leave the program fully equipped with life skills and the message of the gospel to contribute and transform the world around them but also bring those in the community into the lives of these women, sharpening them, loving them and beginning to form and build a construct of community, creating a hope and foundation for these women to step into adulthood with confidence.”
AIP partners with many local organizations such as Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative (NOVA -HTI), Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church, Department of Family Services, Loudoun County Foster Care, Homeless Intervention Program, Good Shepherd Alliance, Loudoun Cares and Mobile Hope.
