Respect Ya-Self was organized in August of 2006 in Greer, South Carolina. In March of 2007, Respect Ya-Self received its 501(c)(3) status.
While working as a Loan Officer, the Lord gave Pamela Williams a vision to encourage people to become homeowners and to offer free home buyers classes. For nearly 8 years, Respect Ya-Self has given out school supplies and back packs to low-to-moderate income families. Respect Ya-Self adopts 2-3 needy families with children during Christmas and purchase several needed items. Not to mention the back to school clothing for needy families.
All events are self-funded by Founder, Pamela Williams until 2016.
Respect Ya-Self has collaborated with other non-profits and church groups.
