About An Earthly Embrace


An Earthly Embrace (AEE). Our organization was founded in 2012 to serve Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, Baltimore City/County, and Prince George‚Äôs County, Maryland.  We are a 501 C 3 charitable organization

Our mission is to heal, empower and rebuild the lives of women and children impacted by domestic violence by providing educational programs and support services. We also strive to educate and empower young girls in high-risk communities. 


AEE will provide education and authentic support that will aide in breaking the cycle of domestic violence in the lives of women, children and teens. Further, AEE will inspire individuals to live free from abuse, shame, fear and oppression so they may be healed, empowered and rebuild their lives.
