Our mission is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. 

Our vision is to inspire a world that embraces the beauty of diversity. Where every person, of every race, gender, sexual orientation, culture, and faith, enjoys equitable opportunities, lives free from violence, and is empowered to become an agent of change. 

Do you dream of a community overflowing with equity, safety, and opportunity for all? 
Together, we are building that future but we need your spark. 

Your donation fuels: 

  • Safe havens: Sheltering survivors of domestic violence and low-income and homeless women (trans-inclusive) and offering hope for a new beginning. 
  • Empowered futures: Professional and personal development, early childhood education, and programs lighting the path to lifelong success. 
  • Stronger voices: Advocating for policies that champion justice and equality for everyone. 

With every gift, you invest in a brighter and safer tomorrow for all.
