To empower, motivate, and inspire women to find the will to succeed and grow by creating the tools and resources they need, removing barriers, and creating connections so that women can become the ultimate versions of themselves.
To empower all women to be the ultimate versions of themselves no matter what adversities they have faced and to change the stigmas around sexual and domestic abuse by offering therapy to survivors to heal and education for prevention.
& Rise offers personal and professional development workshops, women's empowerment events, and weekly support groups for women who are sexual and domestic abuse survivors. Our vision is to provide single mothers who want to go to college, with financial assistance for tuition, supplies, and childcare. Additionally, we plan to provide sexual and domestic abuse survivors with therapy and counseling free of charge so they can overcome the emotional and mental blocks associated with their trauma to be the ultimate versions of themselves! Our organization believes women thrive on building and sustaining strong connections with one another, some of which assist in forming their futures! In order to help facilitate these bonds, we’re passionate about hosting events that highlight inspirational stories of triumph, encourage meaningful networking, and motivate all that attend to accomplish any and everything they want in life, personally or professionally.
