I was honored this week to be inducted into the North San Diego division of Soroptimist International. I’ve been desiring for a place to give back, and in particular to women and children in need, a passion of mine.
Soroptimist’s are a global women’s organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment.
In particular, the North San Diego Soroptimist club works together with local agencies on a Transitional Housing Program for domestic violence survivors. This 18-month program moves families from dependency and abuse to a safe, self-sustaining life by providing housing, financial help and mentoring. I will be working closely within this group in hopes of being able to provide our studios skills when furnishing these new homes.
Looking forward to giving back and encouraging women who just need a helping hand to get on their feet.
