“There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.”
–— W. E. B. Dubois
Women’s Empowerment Series Fond du Lac is an annual 10-week series providing guidance to women in the Fond du Lac area to make positive change in their life. Trauma, addiction, domestic violence, poverty are met with hope, support, healing, awareness and education.
See what our graduates & volunteers are experiencing:
I had zero confidence and no plan before I joined the Women’s Empowerment Series. After the program, I got a decent paying job, left an abusive situation, and am raising my daughter alone. This is the first time I have been able to love myself.
I volunteer for the purpose of helping others. I started volunteering with the Department of Social Services to get experience as I want to become a Social Worker. I started volunteering for the series because of the basis of the whole program, of allowing women to feel empowered no matter their situation.
I learned so many valuable and useful tools –– and have overcome a very crippling addiction, got the courage to go through with a divorce and lost the barriers that were holding me back – self-pity, self-centeredness, and depression. I am a MUCH better woman now and I CAN conquer ANYTHING. I turned the bad in my life into a positive and my mission is to happily help others overcome theirs!
This mission is very close to my heart. I have built my self up from poverty, addiction and incarceration while raising my daughter and want to help all women succeed.
We are all one big sisterhood
I want to give back to the community. I believe in women empowering other women through friendship and sisterhood and have always wanted to make a change in the world; even if it’s as small as just one persons’ world.
