Home, Inc., acronym for Kingdom Investments in Single Hearts (K.I.S.H.) K.I.S.H. Home Inc. was founded out of a desire to impact positively on the lives of girls and women in the state of 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 witnessed the tremendous challenges of 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 opening a checking/savings account, parenting and the frustration of single parenthood.
Dr. George knew that these young adults, whether they were a single parent or single, needed a strong support system that would empower and encourage them to take control of their lives. They struggled in their transition of leaving foster care because many were still attending high school and were not emotionally or financially stable. After witnessing this, Dr. George began her journey of seeking ways to assist young adults in becoming emotionally and economically self- sufficient so that their transition out of the foster care system and into independent living was successful. Many of the young adults with whom she worked with left the foster care system at 18 years old and found themselves homeless, pregnant, lacking self- esteem, incarcerated, unemployed and without guidance. As a mentor, Dr. George became frustrated by the minimum amount of resources the community offered these young adults. Dr. Kishma’s dream came to pass and she opened a 24-hour transitional home for young women presently in, or have aged out of the foster care system in Delaware. She wants to make a difference in their lives and make certain that they have a safe, successful transition to adulthood and independent living.
