Dr. Kishma A. George, Purpose Pusher

Dr. Kishma A. George can, in a single phrase, be described as a Purpose Pusher. She is a prophetess, entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, international radio personality, TV show host, mentor, playwright, producer and 4 x bestselling author, and her overarching mission is to inspire people to fulfill their God-given purpose. She believes that, despite life’s circumstances, there is greatness inside of you! Dr. Kishma’s work as a speaker and mentor is executed through the Women Destined for Greatness Mentoring Program in Kent County, Delaware. Dr. Kishma A. George is the president and CEO of K.I.S.H. (Kingdom Investments in Single Hearts) Home, Inc. K.I.S.H. Home, Inc. was founded out of the desire to make an impact in the lives of girls and women in Delaware, as well as those young women who are presently in or have aged out of the foster care system. Dr. George worked as an independent living mentor and witnessed the tremendous challenges that aged-out foster care youth experienced while trying to find their way to a self-sufficient and stable life. A passion within her grew for these young adults and their future as she experienced their frustration in handling basic skills, such as 241 opening a checking/savings account, parenting and the frustration of single parenthood. Ms. George knew that these young adults, whether they were a single parent or not, needed a strong support system that would empower and encourage them to take control of their lives. They struggled in their transition of leaving their homes or foster care because many were still attending high school and were not emotionally or financially stable. After witnessing this, Ms. George began her journey of seeking ways to assist young adults in becoming emotionally and economically self-sufficient so that their transition out of their homes or the foster care system and into independent living was successful. Many of the young adults with whom she worked left their homes or foster care at 18 years old and found themselves homeless, pregnant, lacking selfesteem, incarcerated, unemployed and without guidance. As a mentor, Ms. George became frustrated by the minimum amount of resources the community offered these young adults. She wanted to make a difference in their lives and make certain that they had a safe, successful transition to adulthood and independent living. K.I.S.H. Home, Inc. offers young women in Delaware the support they need to become emotionally stable and self-sufficient in every aspect of their lives and community.
