Our Mission 

 To empower women in all areas of their lives, to provide a hand which they can use metaphorically to pull themselves up out of powerlessness: from welfare and the cycle of povery, from abusive relationships, even from involuntary sex trafficking and prostitution. Over a one to two year-period, we will rescue vulnerable women in need by giving them a hand from which they can lift themselves up and out of bad situations into better ones. We will provide emotional support in the form of counseling, and confidence-building . And we will help with concrete needs, such as shelter/affordable housing, food, clothing, etc. We will provide job training, improvement of skill sets, including driving a car and obtaining a license, legal help with traffic tickets, learning to balance a check book and open a bank account, etc. We will educate women at risk about credit, taxes, personal finance, job interviewing, resume writing, good presentation in an interview, passing college entrance exams, etc. to help prepare them for the working world away from poverty and government dependence. We also will offer job training in specific fields such as construction, design, fashion, starting a new business, etc. In doing so, we will help and empower not only women, but their children and families as well.
