Inspired by others to build a world where young women feel loved and supported.

.Sisters-in-Arms is a 501 (c) 3 committed to carrying on the mission of investing in women because others invested in us


From our Founder

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.
