Woman-2-Woman & Associates(W2WA) is a faith-based, non profit 501(c)3 organization created for the complete advancement of all women, especially those in crisis from domestic violence, substance abuse and homelessness.... Our primary purpose is to be THE source of educational and informational empowerment to all women.
W2WA was Founded by its CEO Minister. April LaLand-Sentmanat. She was born in the Bronx, New York. Her childhood was happy until her Mother passed away when she was 8 years old and her life seemed to spiral downhill. Several misfortunate episodes happened in her early childhood including molestation, abuse, rape and most devastatingly drug addiction beginning at 15 years old. Her drug use spiraled out of control. April eventually ended up incarcerated, facing 10 years in prison. After 2 years, she met representatives from The Georgia Justice Project of Atlanta, GA, who assisted in her release and start in the recovery process. She participated in numerous drug recovery programs but never seemed to be able to maintain sobriety and eventually lost custody of two of her children. But she never gave up and never gave in.
When she was introduced to Jesus Christ by Fresh Bread Christian Ministries Sr. Pastor Daniel Fagan and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. April began her Spiritual walk with Christ, and with her Pastor's continuous guidance and support, she is fulfilling God's Purpose for her life. The Minister has remained free from drugs & believes in the Divine purpose for her life today. Following the path God has set, she is now a licensed Minister, Author, Community Advocate, WRIZ Radio Station Owner and Co-Host on WIGO 1570, Mentor, and an Inspirational Speaker; empowering and inspiring those still left in the perils of abuse and addiction.
