Parthenia Warford is the Founder of The Warford Foundation. Helping others that are less fortunate is something that she loves to do.
The purpose of The Warford Foundation is to assist military widows and single mothers with the opportunity to obtain a two year degree in nursing.
Parthenia holds a special place in her heart for single mothers because she knew hardships of raising her two daughters while serving in the US Army.
She served her country honorably from 1981 to 2002. A retired US Army soldier, she is too familiar with the plight of the military spouse. She knows the impact of having a spouse serving their country fighting this Nation's war one day and being told the next day that you're now a widow with children. This life altering event is devastating to anyone and a military wife (or single mother) with limited job skills is left to pick up the pieces to provide the best way she can for her family.
The mission of The Warford Foundation (TWF) is to expand the opportunities of all single mothers they DO NOT have to be military related AND military widow families by increasing self sufficiency through scholastic growth and achievement. The Foundation reaches out to the military widows that lost their loved ones due to the current wars; as well as other single mothers, we feel they are all disadvantaged. Our vision is to help military widows - who are often forgotten about after the funerals and other military rituals - as well as other single mothers that are also in need of financial assistance, to obtain an associate’s degree to become a registered nurse. The proceeds of the Foundation's various events will go directly toward Project Impact Scholars Program established to assist with our efforts to help single mothers and military widows.
Parthenia currently holds two Master of Art Degrees (Acquisitions and Procurement with a sequential in Organizational Security Management, along with a Graduate Certificate in Government Contracting) from Webster University and is currently pursuing a Masters in Non-Profit Management at the University of Maryland University College.
