The History of One Hand to Another
Dotralee at the time was working as a Program Specialist at an all girls halfway house which was a program for girls who had been court-ordered to serve 6-9 months in the program. There was a youth who was in the program and her time had come to be discharged. After a week or so of being released this youth was found in a hotel deceased. In 2012 Dotralee came up with One Hand to Another girl's mentoring group. And in 2013 Dotralee then had the opportunity to mentor to an amazing group of 6th to 8th grades girls. And from there One Hand to Another mentoring group was formed.
