Delores was born & raised in the ghetto of Milwaukee, WI. At the age of 6 she was raped by a couple of the neighborhood boys, one of which she had a crush on. He then convinced her that that’s how you show love. Her sexual abuse continued she was 16 not only by the neighborhood boys but her brother and father as well. On her 16th birthday her father “sold” her to his best friend.
She was then sent to an all-girls school and when it was time to leave she had the choice to either go home or foster care so she chose foster care. Her foster family taught her what real love was and that sex did not equal love. Sadly, once she left she ended up in relationships with alcoholics and abusers.
She ended up getting married and had 2 daughters but the marriage ended badly and she went through a horrible custody battle while she was pregnant with her son. After going totally broke and now with a baby to care for she fell into her old ways and started working in exotic clubs. During this time her father introduced her to what soon became her pimp. Delores found herself close to death on many occasions, once by knife and another time by a gun in her face but God spared her life from being taken. Her change came when she found out her son was being sexually abused by her pimp’s nephew.
Her real change came when she realized she needed help for her and her son and at that time there wasn’t help for the issues they were dealing with. That is how OK Kids Corral was started. She met with challenges in getting it started and was ready to give up but she felt God’s prompting and didn’t give up.
Delores has an Associate in Arts degree for Accounting and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.
