Since its inception, The Shadow Foundation has worked to empower students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a significant impact on society.
The Shadow Foundation equips young woman ages 18 through 21 years old with the skills and education necessary to become independent, productive adults.
The program’s goal is to help daughters of mothers who are incarcerated develop much-needed independent living skills.
Our program is created for older teens that truly have no otherwise resources; the program provides counseling, education assistance, career planning services and life skills training.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of community leaders with expertise in a wide range of areas, including training, advocacy, education, finance, law, fund development, and business management.

We are planning a series of Virtual Zoom & YouTube Conferences over the next few months to create awareness for The Shadow Foundation, The JAS Connection and the One Million Women of Color worldwide and to raise funds to send 1862 young women ranging in ages 18 through 21 to college over the next decade.
Stay tuned for updates and our soon to be released event calendar .
Through the movement that is Reclaiming My Time, we are committed to bringing forth the unheard voices of women who fought for righteousness and injustice, progressive, empowering women who collectively envision a world whereby women of color have the rights, respect, and resources to thrive.
When we come together, we exemplify the meaning of love for our community by reminding the world of our longstanding inheritance of strength, wealth and power of our ancestors.
