Mission Statement

Rise of Broken Women is a multicultural nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women and their families extricate themselves from the cycle of poverty.

Description

Rise of Broken Women is built on our vast network of volunteers who enable us to distribute basic necessities to women and families in over 98 homeless shelters and low-income communities throughout the five boroughs of New York City. We have distributed menstrual products, toiletries, winter coats, socks, under garments, school supplies, and toys to over 15,000 people within our community. We also work to educate the non-poverty-stricken New York City community on issues facing homeless and low-income families so that they become inspired to help these families out of their poverty-stricken circumstances. Understanding is the key to empathizing and taking action.
