We believe in living a life without limits!

Stay in touch with us.

You Are More Than Enough

Life is full of challenges, and it can be daunting to navigate life by yourself. At Sisters-in- Arms in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, we can guide you in being a strong, independent woman. We believe that ladies deserve to live life without limits.

Founded by Mary Lourdes Saenz, the nonprofit Sisters-in-Arms  supports girls and young women. We teach them to manage finances, apply for work, and develop their God-given skills.


We offer long-lasting solutions to enable young women to break the cycle of poverty and empower them to establish a safer &  better future. Our personalized programming bolsters confidence within and provides the knowledge necessary for young women to actively define their lives.


A world where women do not live in poverty and are treated with respect and dignity. 

 Strong families that shape the world around them.


Every woman has the right to realize her full potential and achieve financial independence, and we can equip them with the proper education and the tools they will need.


We strive to empower women to achieve economic independence and acquire personal development skills so they can thrive 

in work and in life.


I met a young woman at a school for girls. Her name is Morgan, and her story really touched my heart. I sat with her, two counselors, and another volunteer. She told us about her accomplishments and challenges and shared her daily routine of catching the city bus at 5:00 a.m. with her two-year-old son.

I looked at her and exclaimed, "You are only 14 years old!" and she then said to me, "I don't want him to grow up in foster care like me.'"

I couldn't believe the strength of this young woman - only a child herself. I think about her every day. I feel compelled to help her and other young women secure a future they can look forward to and change their circumstances.

I want to start by rooting and building a solid foundation within them by putting God in their hearts and building friendships & routines that create a solid sense of belonging. Self-worth is the groundwork of progress.

I have built a community of professional women that will help educate young women in the following areas: etiquette classes, instruction in how to look and dress with confidence, money management skills and more----all will be reinforced with Bible studies. My team will meet the young women where they are in life and help them take their next steps. Believing in them until they believe in themselves.

Every young woman deserves a life defined by responsibility, dignity, peace & courage.

I am honored to be included in this magazine with people and organizations that make a difference by helping others in our community--making our community a better place to live and thrive.

On the left- Mr. Dwight Hibbard. His kindness and belief in me gave me the confidence to restart my business and not give up. Because of him, I look forward to a better future where I can help others, just as he has done for me.

On the right - Mr. and Mrs. Marx are the parents of Mary Marx, President & CEO of Pace, an organization that transforms girls' lives and changes direction for a better future. Mr. Marx volunteers his time by tutoring students in math. Because of them, I learned of the challenges the girls face every day.

Poverty often affects women the most, and its effect can cause long-lasting trauma. A woman's needs must be addressed In order to improve the quality of her life--and this also extends to her family. We recognize the significant role of a woman in economic development. To uplift those in poverty is the smart thing to do as well as being socially & morally right.
