Lady Stacy Ann Wisdom, BSW, MSW
Founder & CEO
Defined as an art form by some, God has revealed that I am a daughter of the King. The Greek word fashion comes from the word “Yatsar.” “Yastar” is defined as to form, fashion, and frame. I believe that I am fashioned and equipped by God to empower women. I recognized that social disparities, discrimination, and marginalization can render us helpless in pursuing our hopes and dreams. I am humbled to use my spiritual gifts and professional skills to help women in their journey of becoming a masterpiece. I have more than 25+ years of experience working with youth and young women and I believe that we can help empower, equip, and strengthen women into becoming the best version of themselves through faith, advocacy, and education. I am the Founder and CEO of Daughters of Grace, Inc. Welcome to a place of transparency and healing.
Lady Stacy-Ann Wisdom ‘A title means nothing if there’s no work behind it.”
