About Us


The Founders

Joi and Jenine, two girls from Brooklyn, unknowingly grew up alongside one another in the same Brooklyn neighborhood and only first connected during sophomore year in a Manhattan High School. Upon their first meeting, Joi and Jenine shared similar backgrounds and patterns such as single parent environments, abusive relationships, abandonment, motherhood, promiscuity and all the elements of what young adolescent women go through on a day to day basis.


Throughout our journey and experiences Divine Angels Wellness Center was born. Our mission and our purpose are clear and we put forth workshops that will assist in the development of young women in their communities. Joi and Jenine want to give life, love and support to the community of women, finding their way in life, just as they have done for each other.
