Advocacy & Support

"When the world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful." - Malala Yousafzai

Advocacy

Reaching Our Community

BW​

Becoming Woman's Foundation endeavors to reach out and connect with the community at large. We encourage them to get involved - to ensure that the voice of girls in foster care and in underserved communities are heard and to help us change the narrative of the foster care system. At BWF, we strive to:

  • Teach the young women we serve how to advocate for themselves

  • Advocate for more involvement  from the community in foster care, primarily in the Christian and African American community

  • Advocate for foster care resources and trauma-informed care in schools

Support

Reinforcing Our Commitment

BWF seeks to provide the programs, services, and tools to enhance the life experiences of the women in our care. We want to equip those who have experienced trauma and hardships with the essential resources to grow and heal. This includes:

  • Peer support

  • Mentorship

  • Therapist referrals

  • Connections to other supportive services
