Our Story

mother and children laughing

Since retirement from Corporate America in 2013, June Wood found her purpose in life to use her God-given passion, skills, and abilities to make a positive impact in this world. Through much meditation, soul searching and some personal life experiences, she is committed to encourage, inspire, and mentor women from all walks of life especially single mothers through the non-profit established as the Virtuous Women Life Academy.

Wood has witnessed and had some experiences of the challenges that women face in family, personal and professional situations.   Wood has a strong passion to help women who are committed to getting out of difficult situations and are committed to overcoming depression, poverty, and lack of value.  Many are stressed to the max wondering how they are going to make it as a single parent; they are working but living from paycheck to paycheck; they want a better life for themselves and their children. They are just overwhelmed and need encouragement, mentoring and help to move forward towards their dreams.

Since 2014, Wood has provided outreach to women by offering inspirational support, referring them to counseling & transitional housing, and mentoring for job preparation & placements, parenting, higher education, parenting, and other life skills.
