“When women support each other, incredible things happen.”

As women mentoring women to success, we provide mentors and financial assistance to local women in an effort to increase their potential for self-sufficiency.  Whether they are pursuing academic, personal, or vocational goals, mentees consistently point to the power of having someone who believes in you, someone who is willing to take the time to listen and guide you.  Mentees who succeed credit their mentors with making it possible.

It is only fitting to honor those women in the community who have mentored other women, providing them with the Help, Opportunity, Passion, and Empowerment they needed to succeed.
