Local non-profit, Women Who Care celebrates new building in Enterprise

ENTERPRISE, Al. (WTVY) Helping women live their best life, that's the goal of the local non-profit “Women Who Care.”

In 2008, Jennifer Johnson was in a different place, drug problems landed her in jail.

She says, "I'm not very proud of it, but I believe our steps are ordered of the Lord, it may not be the road you want but it might be the road you need."

Then Jennifer met Harolyn Benjamin, founder of Women Who Care, a nonprofit, that helps people realize their full potential.

Harolyn says,
"It is one thing for me to tell you where you need to be, it is another for you to get the tools to get where you think you need to be."

Wednesday with US Representative Martha Roby looking on the group celebrated their new building in Enterprise.

Harolyn says, "For me, it is about being the hands and feet of God."

Harolyn says success stories like Jennifer’s are her motivation.

Johnson now owns her own business.

Jennifer says, "I'm not where I used to be, and I might not be where I want to be but at least I'm not there where I was and I am so thankful because without these people, I would not have my own business"

Harolyn says there is no limit to what anyone can do when they realize your worth.

"I do know one thing, we don't have any throw away people in the world."

Roby says she will do anything she can to help this group continue to empower people.
