“There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.”
–— W. E. B. Dubois
The Women’s Empowerment Series is a year-round program committed to empowering women and children to utilize the resources and support offered to them throughout the community, creating a 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.
