Empowering Women Who Are Rebuilding Their Lives DONATE
We serve women who have moved beyond crisis; they have taken initiative and sought help, found safety, shelter, and counseling.
How do they create a new life in which they can be successful and fulfilled? How do they build a positive future for themselves and their children?
We help them Leap to Success.
Now, they are stepping up, speaking out,
Our graduates have triumphed over extreme circumstances and are building new futures for themselves and their families.
Our grads are inspiring thousands of women around the region through our outreach programs.
Proud graduates and instructors of Transformation Leadership

Mom is the name for God in the mouths of children, yet there are no words that express the power and courage for describing her love. Mothers take care of what they can and somehow have learned to trust a higher power to work and guide their children where they can't. Maternal love, somehow, is the catalyst to believe one can do something beyond what has been done before, because every child who comes into this world is a new expression of God with infinite possibilities. And moms are entrusted to be the first visionary of what's possible for our lives! Reflection: Take some quiet time to contemplate your mother's love and write her a thank-you note, whether she is in this world or the next. From Joyous Living Journal by Rev. Christian Sorensen

Do you want to be right, or be happy? Kathe Gogolewski did a great job as our guest instructor. She had us all thinking about how we can be more compassionate and understanding so that we can have more peace in our lives. Thank you, Kathe!
Always inspired by our women. Heard this in class last night from Angela. "When people are upset and yelling at you -- it's usually their stuff, their garbage and doesn't have anything to do with you. I keep my house clean and don't let other people dump their garbage in my house."
To get a close up look at the models take a look here. You'll see the amazing makeup and detail. Beautiful photos! Thank you Sinsay Fitography!
