Meet The Founders 

Tinequa Bedford, Executive Director and Founder With Alvin Bedford, Co-Founder 

God gave Tinequa Bedford a vision to bring forth a foundation for the multitude of spiritually, physically and emotionally abused victims. After sharing the vision with Alvin, her husband, Damaged Goods Organization, Inc. was established on March 27, 2018.

Tinequa’s Story

Tinequa experienced abuse for 11 years. The traumatic ordeal left her feeling hopeless, scared, and unsure of who she was and which way to turn in life. She sought help from herself and her family through mental health programs and counseling. Tinequa moved from living in a homeless shelter to a permanent house. 18 years later, by the grace of God, she continues to receive healing.

Tinequa never ceases to pursue all that life has to offer—with the support of her husband, their children (Darianté, Angel, and Isaiah) and her mother, Alexa Brown.

While participating in ministry outreach in 2006, she received recognition from the Black Infant Health (BIH) program in Missions Hills and was featured in their newsletter. The article highlighted her goals and encouraged others not to give up. She was then invited to join the quality improvement committee (QIP). The committee’s responsibility is to find better ways to improve the BIH.

The Sexual Assault Response Team (SARS), a refuge for battered women, asked Tinequa to share her testimony in 2009. In 2010, she had the opportunity to share her story on Channel 3 news in Lancaster, California.

Educational Attainment

Tinequa obtained a certification in office and business communication from Antelope Valley Adult School in 2010. She is currently pursuing an Associate Degree in Sociology at Antelope Valley College. Praise the Lord for she is an honor student!

In 2014, Tinequa received a letter of recognition from Valley Oasis for continued ministry outreach with homeless women and children. Overall, Tinequa has more than 15 years of experience.
