Interviewer BIO Lisa Norwood, oldest of eight siblings, a single mother of three sons was searching for an organization that would provide educational support for mothers on rearing boys and mentoring for her sons. She had no family in Georgia, and her sons desired and needed a positive male role model in their life. Being employed as a supervisor in a juvenile court system, she was aware of numerous programs for boys already in the system but nothing to prevent them from becoming a first time offender. After witnessing an extensively high volume of males being raised by females alone in the juvenile system, it became apparent that there was a need for a support organization. Extensive research was conducted throughout the Atlanta metro area of the needed services, and the response was overwhelmingly in favor to start a program. She stepped out on faith and resigned from her management position despite everyone's opinion and birthed Mothers Raising Sons, Inc. a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in 1999. God gave her 7 volumes based on real life experiences for family relations, parenting, marriages and where is my daddy. Be a part of the village by expressing your experiences and giving advice.
