SOAR

So Other's Ascend Righteously

Purpose: Our purpose is to instruct others how to use writing as a tool to empower their voices, so they are able to claim their space for themselves and their community.  

Mission: Our mission is to create a safe space to use writing as a tool to promote healing and emotional literacy to a vulnerable community of young women of color who are at a pivotal moment in their lives.

 

Vision: Our vision is to provide a continuum of care for young women of color by introducing them to a variety of healing modalities, life skills, and a village of Mother Mentors who will create a circle of power to support their possibilities.
