Destiny Grigsby, CEO, and Founder at a very young age always had a passion for growing up and entering into a profession that would assist others in bettering their lives. As a little girl, she was always told to grow up and become the family attorney with the hopes of representing her biological father to get him out of prison. Not into her second year of undergrad she realized her calling and the need to help vulnerable individuals who may have had little to no help. By continuing her education she is currently scheduled to obtain her Masters of Social Work Degree, summer of 2018. After being raised by a single parent of five, Bernice Grigsby, who was a survivor of domestic violence and the phenomenal woman who put five children through higher education obtaining their Masters, and Ph.D., CEO Destiny, knew her calling would be to tell her story when starting her very own nonprofit organization in 2016.
