OUR VISION

VISION STATEMENT

  

Our vision is to be a resource for organizations that empower and improve the lives of women and youth to help them achieve long-term, positive change, both for themselves and others.


We believe that through thoughtful, strategic support we can make a difference in the lives of women and youth by investing in innovative, replicable projects that target a critical unmet need of disadvantaged and disenfranchised individuals primarily, but not limited to, the Greater Los Angeles area.
