Throughout the years, we have witnessed waves of triumph and struggle among our members.

We have been there for mothers experiencing domestic violence and abusive relationships; mothers fighting for custody of their children and mothers with kids in the foster care system; and for mothers facing discrimination based on their immigration status and language skills.  We have shared experiences of sexism, racism, islamophobia, and empowered women to rise above these assaults.  We offer a safe place for our members to share struggles with mental illness, and support everyone’s right for self-determination.  Over the years we have made house visits, accompanied our members to court, and connected members with countless community resources.

Our legacy attests that we ‘rise’ to every challenge our members share.  Through thick and thin, we champion every woman’s journey as one of struggle and courage, and we make space to celebrate our achievements collectively.
