In 2020, Lisa Edwards was presented with a great opportunity to not only share her story, "InHerCure", (THE DAY BEFORE, THE DAY OF, AND THE DAY AFTER), but to make a difference along with six other women overcoming internal thoughts and feelings that has allowed them to find strength through the various challenges of their lives. She shared her story in hopes that others would have relatable experiences and know that whatever they are experiencing and have been facing can be cured.
As Central Care Services expands its effort to provide support for the vulnerable community in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area during unprecedented times; resources and demand for services have increased, but financial support has not.
