The O.I.L.E. organization works with underserved and abused Hispanic women through Healing Stitches, a therapeutic program that offers social services, educational programs, health initiatives, and community outreach.
We partner with the United Way and other non-profit organizations to offer resources and assistance. As a United Way House, Healing Stitches provides a centralized location where individuals and families can receive wrap-around social services from multiple community organizations.
Healing Stitches understands the needs of its community, but our goal is to empower WOMEN.
Lucy Garcia received the 2023 Florida Lideres Award and is recognized as a Latino Leader in Lee County with other community leaders like Rafael Lopez and Ft. Myers City Mayor, Kevin B. Anderson.
