We need your support.

Sisters Encouraging Sisters Ministries, Inc., is a non-profit, 501.c.3 organization that encourages and educates women of all ages. We are in need of your financial support to help fund our outreach program, which consist of providing personal hygiene products to the homeless, The Clothes Closet, and the Life Skills programs for teen-age girls age 12-15.

We are in the planning stages of a series of workshops in Columbia, SC. The workshop will cover a range of topics, including health & wellness; financial management; age appropriate health issues; basic homemaking skills; and entrepreneurship.  The finale will be a family style dinner event planned, cooked, decorated, and served by the young ladies to showcase what they have learned.


Please help us to bring this vision to fruition, and to continue educating and encouraging our young ladies by contributing what you can. 100% of all donations will go support our community and outreach projects.
