Whether coping with difficult family relationships, adjusting to a career change, concerned about financial security, grieving the loss of a loved one, or simply seeking opportunities for personal growth we are here to help you on your personal journey.

We believe women are the heart of the family and families are the backbone of our community. No matter what stage you are currently in at one point you have been a child, sister, mother, aunt, friend, employee or employer and what we know is: When the women of our community are strong, self-sufficient, and making good decisions the impact is far reaching.

We provide a safe, welcoming environment where you are met with understanding and information to help when you find yourself in a state of transition and not sure of your next steps and opportunities.
