To provide support for the programs and projects of The Amara House. The Amara House provides healthy and safe transitions for women seeking refuge from abuse and/or addiction as well as women re-entering into society from incarceration.
Sisters, Jetaun and Jayda, grew up in Marion, IN, Grant County. The sisters depended on each other heavily in their younger years due to substance abuse in their family. In Jetaun’s senior year of high school, she became involved in a severe domestic violence relationship that took her away from home and lasted many years. Jayda earned a bachelors and masters degree in social work. The sisters have supported one another and, while being what society would identify as high risk for being substance abusers themselves, have decided to fight the good fight.
Jayda and Jetaun came up with the idea for The Amara House while discussing how they can use their gifts, education, and experiences for good. Together, the sisters will use these things along with their passion to improve the community they grew up in.
