Project Description

When I first started Sol Sisters in 2013, I was interning as a Marriage and Family Therapist to low-income girls and their families in San Francisco, California. It was during this time when I began to see the need to diversify mental health services to best serve the community. I realized that cultural stigmas, cost, and accessibility were frequent barriers to individual and family therapy.

For the past five years, my team and I have provided solutions to these barriers by hosting holistic health events and services in: creative art expression, physical health, mental health, and healing through giving (community service). Since then, our mission has been to enrich, empower, and evolve women from all backgrounds.

Sol Sisters, Inc. has provided a number of mental health workshops for women in Oakland and San Francisco. This year, we will host our first mental health conference, Nourish the Sol, for women by women. Each workshop facilitator is a practicing mental health professional. They have prepared content that will reflect our mission to enrich, empower, and evolve our attendee's understanding of their mental and emotional health.

Income level and socioeconomic status should not prevent women from attending quality events like Nourish the Sol. 

 

To help us keep our conference low to no cost, please consider donating to our cause. Your donation will directly allow women and girls from marginalized communities or with financial hardship to attend.

We are a small, mighty, and growing nonprofit. We are able to host events that are truly diverse and inclusive because of you. Thank you for your generosity.  

 

All donations are tax deductible with tax ID: 47-5354756.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Christine and the Sol Sister’s Team

The Project FAQs

Q: How will I know what my donation goes towards?

A: We are a small nonprofit with volunteer staff who work tirelessly to provide women of all backgrounds quality events. The donations we receive from the community go solely to help us set aside tickets and resources for those who need financial assistance. If we receive a larger donation, that will also help us off-set the remaining costs that go towards the event.

Q: How can I get more involved with Sol Sisters?

A: We are always looking for community members to attend our future events AND volunteer! Visit solsisters.org and sign up for our monthly newsletter to learn more.

Q: How can I encourage my community to donate to Sol Sisters?

A: Share this campaign with your networks, or share solsisters.org/donate. We appreciate donations of any amount.
