Helping Survivors Create Success

Ready for success?

You came to the right place

There are no victims here--only survivors who are ready for success!

We're all about three powerful initiatives


The Love Is Action Community Initiative is a powerful collaboration designed to reduce child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, human trafficking, suicide, criminal behavior, and other societal ills by helping community stakeholders set aside their differences, and work together to eradicate social isolation. This initiative is a replication of the highly successful Faith In Motion initiative in Orange County, California. 

We help community stakeholders, like public and private child welfare organizations, local businesses, houses of worship and other ministries, civic groups, clubs, and individuals, to connect in safe ways, to help where each feels called.

Our partners and supporters include Royal Family Kids, Safe Families For Children, National Foster Parent Association, and many more. We hope that YOU will join us today. We are more effective together.

Participation in Love Is Action is rewarding for everyone involved. 


The YOUR REAL SUCCESS curriculum is designed to help survivors of trauma to mine the lessons, character traits, and good coping mechanisms out of their adverse experiences. 

Participants learn to use their unique combination of strengths, talents, and their newly discovered "assets" to create personal and professional success. 

The curriculum was created by Rhonda Sciortino, a former foster kid and successful business woman who used the lessons she learned through her abusive childhood to start and build two successful businesses.

REAL success is measured in five areas:  relationships, health, peace, joy, and provision. Don't make the mistake of conflating authentic success with what the culture calls success. There are extremely wealthy people who are miserable. There are famous people who are immoral and unethical. There are people who seem to have it all, but who have wrecked their health and/or relationships to get what they have. 

Achieving all five facets of authentic success is what you were born to do. Your real success is not only available to you, you were perfectly matched to it. No one else can do precisely what you were created to do. 

This little ebook of success tips on the basics, on the job, and in life can help you create your successful life IF you will consistently apply them.

Finding and fulfilling YOUR REAL SUCCESS is your purpose and fulfillment of the good plan for our life. If you want to explore the specifics of the plan for which you were created, go to YOUR REAL SUCCESS.
