Women's Prison Association of New York, Self-Esteem Workshop
The Foundation for Radiance is proud to be a supporter of the Women's Prison Association of New York (WPA). The WPA promotes alternatives to incarceration and helps women living in the community to avoid arrest or incarceration by making positive changes in their lives. Inside prison and jail, the WPA is a source of support to women and a resource to them as they plan for release.

In addition to financial contribution to WPA, the Foundation for Radiance provides toys and gifts for the women of the WPA and their families. Deirdre Hade, Founder of the Foundation for Radiance, and community volunteers give workshops and teach healthy conflict resolution techniques, guiding the woman in techniques to overcome inner obstacles by using one's own inner positive energy. Many of the women, through this program and through the Foundation for Radiance's assistance, have gone on to live their lives and have become valuable members of society. Image1
