About the Founder

Pecolia James Silver is the founder of STETH Corporation. She is the mother of four and one special grandson whom she has raised as her own. Being a single parent, she had to face a lot of challenges, disappointments, struggles, obstacles, and certainly successes!!

 

"With the help of God; through it all I have found that no matter what I may go through; I can rise above it all, YES!! I can make it.  

 

I have learned that my situation or my circumstances does not determine who I am, who I will become, or most of all my destiny. One of my favorite scriptures is Phillipians 4:13 " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

 

Although, everybody story is different; being a single parent, I can certainly understand some of the struggles and obstacles that women face today trying to raise their families, provide the best for them; while trying to find out who they are."

I firmly believe that we go through things for a reason and for whatever purpose that God has designated for us in our lives.  I know that one of my purposes is to help to empower people, and to provide them with the tools that they need to make them more self-sufficient/self-reliant. My goal is to help to build up individuals, families, and communities.

STETH Corporation is a Non-profit 501c3 Corporation which provides services in and around the community.  I am committed to helping to save the lives of individuals and families, one at a time.
