Founder, Lucinda Cross, finds her purpose:

"After my own personal encounter with the criminal justice system as an at-risk youth, I was determined to be a success story. Not another statistic labeled by the system. I knew that I was more than just a number. I knew I had to take back my name. That’s why I founded Activate Your Life. A non-profit that serves women without judgment. Our organization acts as a bridge to other resources. Our primary goal is to support women and help them become successful entrepreneurs and community leaders."
