But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?' I John 3:17

These services will be provided initially in the state of Washington, Oregon, and will be extended to other states.

- Jireh-Shalom is engaged in the development of community collaborations and partnerships. Community organizations function as sites that house and support abused women and women w/children.
- Jireh-Shalom provides mentorship development and training. Women will have a mentor. These mentors will be trained, and will provide on-going professional and personal development. They will usually have been victims in domestic violence and/or abuse, and have successfully left the situation of their abusers. Training will be conducted by nationally recognized mentorship organizations and will be offered at the site of the organization.
The Jireh-Shalom Foundation was founded as part of the healing process for me and my family. In my book, Genesis: The DC Sniper Story Untold I advocate strongly for domestic abuse/violence awareness, prevention, and intervention. Genesis is the untold story of two American families whose domestic lives become intertwined from a business relationship to friendship; a friendship that culminates as the epicenter of this country's most notorious spree of relentless killings. Starting in Tacoma, Washington, Genesis provides the missing motive, and documents the first murder of murders that precipitated the DC beltway sniper shootings.
Who We Are
Jireh-Shalom Foundation is a nonprofit organization in Tacoma, Washington, committed to the domestic and economic InPowerMent of children, families, and their communities.
Jireh and Shalom are Hebrew words meaning provision and peace. The need for provision and peace for abused women, and women with children, is overwhelming. Through a collaborative approach and a philosophy of unconditional acceptance, Jireh-Shalom Foundation offers the opportunity for truth and reconciliation to the disenfranchised; to receive forgiveness, help, hope, guidance and encouragement.
Our purpose is to help children, families, and our communities with InPowerMent through transformation, and renewing of their minds.
As a believer in the Trinity, and a survivor, I embrace the challenge. Something of value must come from the trail of tears and shattered lives. Jireh-Shalom Foundation is that something.
This is my passion. This is my legacy to domestic abuse/violence survivors like myself. This may be the last thing I do for healing, education, and domestic InPowerMent of our children, our families, and our community.

Tasherra believes that God allows people to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes because He will ultimately use them for his glory. If you just wait on Him he will make it worth your while. The key is to let go and let God.
After all you can not tell him what to do anyway. The question is do you really trust Him?
