Helping People Turn Their Lives Around

Tagged as:
Donna Warren is the co-founder of The Living Without Lies Foundation, the owner of DPW Enterprises which provides web design and copy writing services to both businesses and individuals, and a college professor who teaches computer networking as an adjunct professor at two colleges in the greater Philadelphia area. Donna considers her greatest achievement to be raising two sons that are good, decent men who are independent, self-supporting, contributing members of society.


Donna’s quit school at 16 and got married. Her first career was as a criminal. She had developed both a drug and alcohol problem. She eventually killed her abusive first husband and was charged with first degree murder. Her case was non-suited with prejudice and she was released. It took her several years to straighten out her life.

After 25 years of being afraid that someone would find out about her background, she wrote and published her autobiography and created a self-help program based on what she had to do to straighten out her life called the “Living Without Lies Program”.

In 2012, Donna met her co-founder, Catherine Canady, also a former drug addict and child rape victim. The two hit it off immediately and over time became best friends. In 2015, they created The Living Without Lies Foundation, which is a 501c3 tax exempt nonprofit corporation. Their first project is to open a woman’s shelter in North Philadelphia whose target population are women from age 19 to 90 and services to help them to reenter society as independent, self-supporting, contributing members of society.

Donna feels that she is blessed and wants to give back as she got to where she is with the help of God and a lot of good people.

    Hey Donna,
    I was not able to listen to the whole 1st Show because it is getting quite late, but I am very interested in what you are saying. In some ways we have had very different backgrounds but also very much the same. My parents had money and were “swingers” before the word was invented with a number of couples and they all involved their children forcefully to be a part of that and worse. My heart goes out to both of you. I started studying the Bible and Freud at 6 and a half years old to find out what was wrong with them and fix them before they killed me. I have been on a life long quest to find the answers and help as many others as I can to heal and become all they are created to be. You have great insight into what we are dealing with. Over the years I have learned so much and grown so much and overcome so much, and I want to get to a point where I can really give back in a large way.Our goals are very similar. I may have knowledge and experience that could help you. We might be able to share thoughts and find better answers. I have wanted to find someone working on something like this as i want to also but the means for what I have envisioned are not here yet but I know they are on the way. This was kind of an end goal thing. So I do not know what we can accomplish or whether it is for now or sometime down the road where my vision, which is so similar, is to fulfill itself. But I do know that wheen I see opportunity and possibility I want to explore. I wish you the very best.
