It’s finally summer! We hope you are having lots of fun in the sun and making the most of the longer days. In this issue, we debut our Chicago Woman Summer Bucket List, full of our picks of things to do this season. Consider this issue to be our little celebration of summer, with a guide to easy warm-weather makeup tips as well as where to find some of our favorite cool, sweet treats.

Part of our mission at Chicago Woman is to tell the stories of women all over the city. We are honored to be able to share the story of Kelley Kitley, a phenomenally strong woman who has survived an eating disorder, substance abuse, and sexual assault. In our In Her Words feature, Kitley describes how she channeled her past trauma into a passion to help others overcome their own pain. Men We Love is back for this issue with Rich Alapack, the founder of the ‘we all live here’ project. Through his use of art and technology, Alapack brings communities together and reminds us that we do, in fact, all live here.

And the following week, join us on July 24 for our third Beautious event, where you can indulge in all things beauty with a lineup of some of the city’s best beauty brands and services. Oh, there will also be champagne! As always, we thank all of you for reading Chicago Woman. Jennifer Smith Tapp Director, Editorial and Brand Strategy jennifer@chicago-woman.com

BISTRO CAMPAGNE The warm and friendly decor combined with a rustic take on French food make this bistro an ideal place to have a glass of wine and unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If the weather is nice, enjoy the verdant patio.

But the best treat of all may be the patio that will soon feature live music and bar. 2411 ST. LAWRENCE AVENUE, LONG BEACH, INDIANA

The options are inventive and delicious such as dulce de leche (Argentine milk caramel), sambayón (egg custard with marsala wine), malbec con frutos rojos (Malbec wine with berries), and queso y miel (cheese and honey). And an extra nice touch, the fight is served on a wooden base hand carved by co-owner, Sebastián Koziura. FRÍO GELATO, 3271 NORTH SOUTHPORT AVENUE AND 1301 CHICAGO AVENUE, EVANSTON

NEED TO KNOW

LGBTQ INCLUSIVE CIRRICULUM by Becky Carroll There was reason for celebration when the Illinois legislature wrapped its spring session on May 31 – they walked out with an agreed-upon budget and a pledge by the governor to sign it...a rare occurrence given the past three years. However, the LGBTQ community and its allies have to wait until the fall for the House to take up SB 3249, the Inclusive Curriculum Bill (Senate greenlighted it), that, if passed, will finally recognize the community’s contributions to our society in the teaching of U.S. history in Illinois public schools. Why is this important? It’s not just to recognize the contributions of lesser-known individuals like Alan Turing, Christine Jorgensen or Bayard Rustin and more well-known names like Barbara Jordan or Oscar Wilde; it is also because a more inclusive curriculum will benefit all students. Inclusion of LGBTQ history and curriculum can have a positive and powerful effect on educational outcomes and successes of all students – LGBTQ students would understand there are people like them who made important contributions to society throughout history, while non-LGBTQ students would learn the important contributions of this community and have a fuller sense of the importance of a diverse society. Why do those two points matter so much to young people? It is pretty straightforward and the data speaks volumes. Nationally, more than 75 percent of LGBTQ students in schools with an inclusive curriculum said their peers were accepting of them compared to just 39.6 percent of those in schools without such a curriculum. LGBTQ students in schools with inclusive curriculums are also less likely to Destined to become the new grab-and-go slip-on, Chicago-based Chinelas face verbal or physical harassment because of their sexual is a new shoe line inspired by international versions of the house slipper. orientation.

It’s not just to recognize the contributions of lesser-known individuals like Alan Turing, Christine Jorgensen or Bayard Rustin and more well-known names like Barbara Jordan or Oscar Wilde; it is also because a more inclusive curriculum will benefit all students. Inclusion of LGBTQ history and curriculum can have a positive and powerful effect on educational outcomes and successes of all students – LGBTQ students would understand there are people like them who made important contributions to society throughout history, while non-LGBTQ students would learn the important contributions of this community and have a fuller sense of the importance of a diverse society. Why do those two points matter so much to young people? It is pretty straightforward and the data speaks volumes. Nationally, more than 75 percent of LGBTQ students in schools with an inclusive curriculum said their peers were accepting of them compared to just 39.6 percent of those in schools without such a curriculum. LGBTQ students in schools with inclusive curriculums are also less likely to face verbal or physical harassment because of their sexual orientation.

SIP ON THIS: FLAVORED ROSE WATER

There is also precedence for amending the Illinois School Code to ensure it provides an accurate representation of contributions of historically marginalized communities – for example, African-American history was added in the Rose water haswhile been all rageofinAsian the beauty industry 1980s, thethe study Americans was lately, added in but you can2004 hydrate inside with Petal, a new sparkling rose andfrom thosethe with disabilities in 2010. water in a can.

IN HER WORDS

Making My Mess My Message by Kelley Kitley

The last year of my life has been the most wonderful and successful to date. It’s been an overwhelming entry into the decade of my 40s. Owning my own psychotherapy practice, publishing MY self: An Autobiography of Survival, giving a TEDx talk and sharing my experience, strength, and hope on multiple national media TV outlets to inspire others to be the best version of themselves. As a mother who has four schoolaged children, and a loving and supportive husband, we are in a sweet spot.

However, behind all the success, there is a woman who fought to be resilient and courageous, and a woman that had to overcome many hurdles. I persevered to fight my own demons and become a role model for others. I practice what I preach and spent years unpacking my baggage for inner change. I AM a survivor. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, an adolescent eating disorder, a random act of sexual violence on the streets of Chicago when I was in college, postpartum anxiety and panic, and substance abuse. These experiences laid the foundation of my desire to help others in similar situations because, through my healing process, I had reparative experiences with therapists and mentors who held my hand and gave me hope. As a Chicago native having grown up above my parents’ neighborhood bar in Lincoln Park, I earned both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from The Jane Addams College of Social Work at The University of Illinois at Chicago. I have both clinical training and personal experience of climbing out of the trenches. Do not be ashamed of your story, we all have one to tell. Own it, embrace it, rewrite it if you need to. We are all surviving something. In fifteen years of practice as a clinical social worker, I’ve learned both professionally and personally that the best thing we can do for ourselves is work through our issues, because they’re just going to keep coming up in different ways. They’re like a shadow that always follows us around. I strive to encourage others with mental illness by speaking nationally to break the silence and stigma. My mission is to help people feel less alone, encourage hope, and find strength by seeking help. My hope is that you too find your passion, spread your wings and soar! cw JULY /AUGUST 2018

MEN WE LOVE

RICH ALAPACK Founder,

we all live here Project

Alapack talks with Chicago Woman about four simple words speak volumes about what is possible in our communities, locally and beyond. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE WE ALL LIVE HERE

It was a couple of different ideas converging. When I had the idea for ‘we all live here,’ I used to do creative and brand strategy at Tumblr. I spoke to people in different cities every day and whenever the subject of Chicago came up, it was always about the negative headlines and never about all of the amazing people doing amazing things. Also, there was a white brick garage in my neighborhood that always looked like it was about to fall down but had never been tagged or graffitied in all my years of walking there. So I had started playing a silly little thought game where I would try and imagine what could be written on that wall that the owner wouldn’t mind. One night ‘we all live here’ hit me, and I thought “income equality, gender equality, racial equality, sexual equality, and even the environment were all relevant subjects under the umbrella of this simple four word phrase. I thought I could do something with that powerfully simplistic phrase.

PROJECT?

WHAT HAS BEEN THE RESPONSE OF THE KIDS

I have worked with about 30,000 Chicago students at this point. My program involves an assembly to address the entire student population, and during this assembly every student draws their ideas for a ‘we all live here’ logo for their school. I think students

WHO ARE INVOLVED?

really gravitate towards it because it is such a simple idea, but it’s also a powerful reminder that they can champion and use to correct hateful things they hear in a safe way. ARE THERE PLANS TO BUILD OUT THE PROJECT TO MAKE IT A MORE PERMANENT PART OF CPS CURRICULUM? I would love to work with CPS directly, but so far I have only worked with each school individually. Luckily, I had a Principal tell me to go that route when I first started. That being said, my phone is ready for the call from CPS. WHO ARE THE WOMEN WHO HAVE INSPIRED YOU, EITHER PERSONALLY

My mom was a single mom. She overcame my dad abandoning our family and disappearing when I was 9. It’s pretty tough to beat that for inspiration. I also am really inspired by Lorell Marin from Leep Forward and Katherine Darnstadt from Latent Design. Both are amazing women doing amazing things in Chicago. cw

LIVING HEALTH NUTRITIONALLY SPEAKING:

Simple Pictures Are Best by Andrea Rudser-Rusin In a time where we have apps to streamline tasks and services to do our errands, we are in a constant search to simplify our lives: all the while, our nutrition is in a state of chaos. On a daily basis, I have inquiries, “Should I go gluten-free? What about eggs? Keto? Paleo? Elimination diets? Cleanses?” All of this is best summed up as Americans are nutritionally confused. Unfortunately, with this confusion comes limited long-term health improvements and further setbacks. In fact, obesity rates are steadily climbing, obesity related infertility is on the rise, and cardiovascular disease accounts for 1 in every 4 deaths in women. Fortunately, the healthiest lifestyles aren’t diets at all, but instead are guidelines that create life long habits. Think of the guidelines for healthy eating like you would the lines in a coloring book; you might color outside of the lines once in a while. From a nutritional standpoint, why don’t we go back to the basics like an 8 pack box of crayons. Simply choose real foods, eat a variety of colors, and choose from all of the food groups. And then there is accountability, being accountable to one’s self is critical. It’s like knowing you have to share your picture with the class, so stay within the lines as best you can. The National Weight Loss Registry reports that there is strong evidence to support periodically checking-in with one’s self such as food journaling once a week, weekly weighing, meeting with a registered dietitian on a regular basis, or putting your reflections in writing. Whatever self-monitoring looks like to you, you can be successful by being accountable. So perhaps taking our nutrition and health to a higher level actually means getting back to the basics: real food, real expectations, and a little bit of accountability. After all this should be simple. cw

THE BASICS + Choose whole grains most of the time. + I nclude at least 5 red (or orange) vegetables weekly. +M ake at least 2 meals fish/seafood based weekly. +A im for at least 2½ cup plant-based proteins weekly. +C onsume 3 portions calcium-rich foods daily. +A lcohol—Limit your allowance to 1 daily, no more than two. +P eriodic, consistent self-monitoring.

VACATIONING AS A COUPLE by Gemma B. Allen Ernest Hemingway once said, “Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.” To that I add: If you aren’t sure if you’re in love, on vacation you’ll find out! Travel can strengthen a bond between two people or it can drive them irrevocably apart. In the process, you’ll learn a lot about each other’s temperament, habits, and ability to compromise. You can increase your chances of relationship and touring success with a well thought out plan and a positive attitude. Create the itinerary together. The location, length, type of trip, and the cost will need to be agreed upon. If you haven’t vacationed together, choose a spot that you can both enjoy. Options run the gamut from plays in New York City, to a beach vacation, or an adventure trip. (For ideas, check out gotraveler.com) If it’s your first time away together, shorter may be better.

AGREE ON A BUDGET. The downfall for so many couples is money. Unless one of you is “sweeping the other away” and money is of no concern, be open with each other about finances. Decide before you go how much you’ll spend, and then divvy up costs for the flight, hotel, car rental or taxis, meals, and incidental expenses. Like anything else in life, the key to a happy trip can be found in true communication. EXPECT AND ACCEPT THE UNEXPECTED. Spending countless hours with someone can be wonderful or deeply challenging and sometimes a little of both. Everything seems perfect until you get a sunburn, your wallet is stolen, or you argue over a restaurant. If you find yourself disagreeing a lot, maybe some excursions apart can help. TRAVELING TOGETHER IS A MAJOR STEP. What started out to be a romantic get-away, can quickly turn overcast. When things go wrong, as they inevitably will, don’t cast blame and keep your sense of humor. Remember: this is about making memories and learning if and how far you can journey through life together.

KEYS TO SECURING A CORPORATE BOARD SEAT by Cherilyn G. Murer

You could say this is a victory for all of us. A recent Chicago Tribune analysis of Illinois’ largest publicly traded companies shows that women now represent 44 percent of new directorships. Behind the increase is strong investor pressure to create diverse boards whose members can bring new vigor and positive impact to a company’s bottom line. If a corporate board membership is in your future, consider these steps to get there.. Do great work that gets you noticed. Excel at your job, volunteer for special projects, and develop areas of expertise that corporate boards are looking for now. Board positions tend to go to people that have analytical and conceptual thinking skills, profit and loss experience, and work well with others.

GAIN NONPROFIT BOARD EXPERIENCE. Sitting on nonprofit boards is an excellent way to learn and hone board governance skills as you build your resume. Nonprofit board membership can lead to powerful, influential relationships, and ultimately a corporate board seat.

ENHANCE YOUR BRAND. Keep your bio, CV, and LinkedIn profile board-focused and updated. A professional profile picture combined with a succinct LinkedIn summary with keywords can help you stand out. Publish articles and even a book. I co-authored seven textbooks published by respected publishing companies to demonstrate my expertise in healthcare.

BUILD AND USE A PROFESSIONAL NETWORK. Attend events and reach out to people who can offer advice or help you make connections. Learn to share your skills and career goals in a succinct, compelling way. Be patient but persevere, and you’ll begin to reap the rewards from the seeds you have sown.

After being stalked in grocery stores, parking lots and hockey rinks (I love hockey), and people asking “what are you wearing”– in a good way–I decided it was time to bottle up my perfume and SAOR. Name three local makers and brands that you are inspired by and why. Natural Me Beauty, Yasou Skin Care, and Joshe. All these brands are incredible and developed by incredible, empowering women.

COMMUNICATION R E/SET

Get better at something you do every day

WHAT IS ACTIVE LISTENING? It’s a communication style with a few extra steps that ensures the person you’re listening to feels heard and supported, and most importantly, that you have a take-away of what they actually meant. This is the definition of being ‘on the same page.’ Being an active listener is important because sometimes even if we are technically listening, we’re not really hearing, and we don’t end up taking away what the speaker intended.

CAREER LIVING

e’re constantly communicating, more so than we even realize. We need to make certain we are sending the right message; however, we are often communicating with people where we have no common frame of reference or shared communication styles. When this is the case, active listening is a powerful tool for checking our understanding, and seeing if we’ve gotten on the same page, or are even within the same book. When the conversation is really important, here are some techniques to use. by Nora Philbin

ESTABLISH RAPPORT AND BUILD TRUST Establish rapport and create a connection with the person to whom you’re speaking. Making a connection can be easy; you can authentically compliment your counterpart, or just indicate your interest in what the speaker is saying. Show interest in who they are, where they are from, or where they parked. The most important thing is that you make clear your interest and focus on their message clear. DEMONSTRATE CURIOSITY AND INTEREST Ask a specific question that shows you’re fully engaged by the topic. Let them know through your words (“I’m really interested in this” or “I didn’t know that”), and your body language (leaning in, nodding), and your verbalizations (“a-huh” “hmm”) that you are fully engaged by the conversation. SHOW YOU ARE TRACKING Repeat back the last few words someone has said to you to let them know that you are tracking. This is a great way to (a) show that you’ve actually been listening, and (b) that you at least understand their words. The benefit is that by doing this, you actually are listening more closely.

USE NONVERBAL CUES AND BRIEF AFFIRMATIONS TO SHOW UNDERSTANDING AND OPENNESS Do not cross your arms or lean back in your chair. Try not to fidget. Lean forward from time to time, especially when they are making an important point. Keep your eyes forward and nod. Without interrupting, use affirmations like, “I see,” “I understand,” “Mhm,” and “yes.” ASK CLARIFYING AND OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS By asking questions, you indicate that you are interested in what they have said. By asking openended questions, you let them know that you’re interested in their point of view and are thinking critically about their point. Following up trying to and gather more information shows that you’re invested. If you are not certain about anything they’ve said, or even why they think what they think, it’s important to ask a clarifying question. Most of us often want to avoid making it seem like we don’t understand, or that we don’t understand a particular reference that someone we are speaking

with makes, and this is the cause of a lot of entirely avoidable confusion. When we are willing to show that we don’t know, or that we haven’t tracked perfectly with a conversation, we create the chance to get on the same page. To do this really well and show that the speaker really has your attention; pause and show the speaker that you are not only listening, but also thinking about what they have had to say. Do not jump right in with your question. Allow just a bit of silence. In addition to making them feel like their message is sinking in, the speaker will often elaborate as a way to fill the silence, allowing you to gather even more information. WAIT TO SHARE YOUR OPINION Be sure that your conversation partner has said everything they need to before you give your opinion. Don’t jump in before they are ready. We are often too quick to jump in and share our perspective because we want to show that we can relate; but if we do it too soon and cut them off, you can easily throw away the rapport and good will you have just built. cw

LIVING EMPOWERMENT

TAKING A STAND by K. Sujata

Any time we raise our voices to speak out against injustice, it is an act of courage. But it takes being a certain type of daring to challenge a powerful man with a team of agents, lawyers, and PR spin on his home turf. That is exactly what Scheherazade Tillet, Co-Founder and Executive Director of A Long Walk Home; and Dr. Natalie Bennett, Director of the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center at University of Illinois Chicago did when they brought #MuteRKelly to Chicago, a national campaign led by black women to protest the artist and his music in light of ongoing allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse. The campaign succeeded in forcing the singer to withdraw from a concert held at University of Illinois. The resulting first-ever canceled R. Kelly concert in Chicago has a certain poetic justice for Tillet. Tillet’s organization, A Long Walk Home, uses art to end violence against and empower black women and girls. Meanwhile, Kelly’s art, along with the fame and power that comes with it, has shielded him for over two decades from his transgressions. (Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008; women have come forward alleging abuse as recently as May 2018.)

Successfully boycotting a concert in Chicago, Kelly’s hometown,“sent a loud message nationally about accountability,” Tillet says. “For [the concert] to be canceled in Chicago is a huge win for all survivors,” she concludes. “Our goal is to create a larger conversation [that] Chicago hasn’t really had,” Tillet adds. “How does Chicago hold people accountable for sexual violence and create communities to become upstanders to violence?” It is critical to note that black women are leading this moment—from #MeToo to #MuteRKelly. “Patriarchy and racism work together to invisibilize violence against black women and girls,” Tillet says. “This is a message for black girls and black women survivors that their stories are heard and we see you.” Across our city and our nation, women like Tillet and Bennett are standing up to power, telling their truth, and daring to demand safe, healthy, and just communities for all women and girls. Tarana Burke, an African-American woman who created the #MeToo movement against sexual assault and harassment, continues to grow to include a diversity of stories of women from low-wage working women at McDonald’s and Walmart, to agricultural and domestic workers, and athletes at the top of their careers. The threat of harassment, abuse, and assault remains a common thread among women. But increasingly, we are refusing to stay silent, and instead, we are finding power in our truth and daring to make a difference. cw

FINLAND: YOUR happy PLACE by Tara Gardner

4,400 miles from Chicago a land of saunas, Northern Lights, enchanting forests, vast lakes, and iconic design, all of this and more awaits. It’s little wonder that Finland is now officially the happiest place on earth according to a United Nations report earlier this year. Here are five reasons you should get your happy on:

1. BACK TO NATURE There is a wild and contrasting natural landscape from the picturesque coastal areas in the more populated south to the vast forests and fells in frozen Lapland in the north; exploring this exquisite, v ibrant land offers endless adventures. Home to Santa Claus and all-year-long Christmas; husky or reindeer safaris, winter camping, ice-fishing, and every winter sport imaginable, expert guides such as Adventure Apes can tailor you your perfect escape into the Finnish wilderness. 56

finn facts + A quarter of the country has a latitude north of the Arctic Circle. + T he word ’sauna’ is Finnish. + F inland arguably has more lakes than any other country in the world (Canada is the biggest contender). + ‘ Freedom To Roam’ is a law which means you can wander, pitch a tent, forage or fish wherever you like. Everyone is equal. + F innish inventions include ice skates, Nokia and the SMS, Angry Birds, and of course, the sauna. + M idnight Sun: In southern Finland for June and July the sun is visible nearly 24 hours a day; while further north it is from May to August. + N orthern Lights: From late August to April, nights are dark enough to see the Northern Lights. Opt to see them in the glass igloos in Rovaniemi.

LIVING TRAVEL 3. SWEAT LIFE This nation prizes selfcare as part of everyday life. Far from being considered a luxury, saunas are an essential daily Finnish practice. So entrenched into the culture, it’s not uncommon for Finns to take their business meetings in the sauna too. Boasting the most saunas in the world (over three million); many public saunas offer the option of ice-swimming dips; the heat thought to raise serotonin levels and have healing properties, while the cold energizes and reinvigorates. While in Helsinki, visit Löyly sauna, a chic urban oasis with the Baltic Sea as its plunge-pool.

2. FOOD For foodies, the culinary culture in Finland won’t disappoint. Ranging from more fishfocused dishes in the south to the more robust and hearty, Russian-inspired dishes of the north; fresh, seasonal, and native ingredients play a big part in most menus. From reindeer and wild game to berries, root vegetables, and lush greens; expect plenty of variety and gastronomical delights.

4. CITY CULTURE For those looking for a slice of city life, Helsinki is an eclectic spot to start. Juxtaposed with fascinating contemporary modernist buildings, its charming boulevards and backstreets reveal beautiful historic architecture from the city’s Russian and Swedish-ruled eras. Whether a visit to the Design Museum, the iconic Iittala, and Arabia Design Centre, or Marimekko outlet; the city is a trove of inspiration and innovation for the design-fan. Make your next stop the picturesque city of Tampere. With its friendly, small-town feel, be sure to take in the sights up high from the Näsinneula observation tower and dine in its revolving restaurant. Next visit the Moomin Museum that is dedicated to Finnish author Tove Jansson. Then explore the pretty Pispala architectural area with its original wooden houses and spectacular lake views.

This also makes their café society pretty on-point with super chic coffee spots scattered across the country. Helsinki hosts the biggest annual coffee festival in the Nordics. cw

PAYING IT FORWARD: WHITNEY’S WOMEN

KIDS MIGHT BE OUT OF SCHOOL FOR THE SUMMER, BUT PARENTING IS A YEAR-ROUND JOB AND ONE ORGANIZATION IS HELPING WOMEN ACROSS CHICAGOLAND NAVIGATE THE CHALLENGES OF THEIR ROLE. MEET

Laura Zumdahl PRESIDENT AND CEO OF NEW MOMS.

Interview by Whitney Reynolds

WHAT IS THE MISSION BEHIND NEW MOMS? New Moms exists to interrupt the cycle of poverty and create strong families. We accomplish this by surrounding young moms and their children with everything they need to transform their lives by including stable housing, we allow youth to build the life skills needed to maintain safe housing, job training, hands-on experience, guidance towards economic independence, and family support—equipping young moms with skills they need to be great moms. HOW DID IT GET STARTED? New Moms started 35 years ago when our founder Ellen KogstadThompson noticed a growing population of homeless teen mothers that lacked the resources and skills to care for newborn children. In response, Ellen purchased diapers and formula, she began handing them out from the trunk of her car. In the years since, the programs have expanded and adapted to better meet the needs of the families we work with, but Ellen’s ethos of service to those in need continues to drive the work.

PICTURED LEFT TO RIGHT: WHITNEY REYNOLDS AND LAURA ZUMDAHL

HOW DO YOU IMPACT THE LIVES OF WOMEN THROUGHOUT CHICAGO? New Moms is a comprehensive model for surrounding young moms and their children with the resources they need to transform their lives; and simply put, this model works. Last year, we provided services to 287 moms and 361 children. We offer support to young mothers and their children in the most important areas in the life of a family: stable housing, job training, and family support. WHY FOCUS ON MOMS? Mothers are the cornerstones of strong families, and strong families contribute to strong communities. By helping young mothers struggling with poverty and homelessness develop the skills they need to be strong parents, we are creating deep and lasting change that interrupts the cycle of poverty and creates opportunity for two generations. WHAT’S YOUR GREATEST SUCCESS STORY FROM THE PROGRAM? The first one that comes to mind is Natasha, who is 20 years-old with a 12 month-old daughter. Natasha was homeless when they arrived at New

Moms, and despite tremendous challenges, she was able to keep her daughter safe and healthy while they were homeless. Living in her own apartment was the first step for Natasha in building confidence in her own parenting skills. She later found a daycare she was comfortable with, and then joined our job training program, where she gained valuable job skills and learned how to budget her money. Now, Natasha regularly participates in the parenting workshops we provide, and she is stably employed. Natasha’s story isn’t flashy, but it’s the story of a young woman working hard to build a better life for herself and her baby, which is ultimately what we hope for with all of the moms we work with. HOW CAN PEOPLE GET INVOLVED? Join us in our mission by financially investing in our work, volunteering, or even buying candles from our social enterprise, Bright Endeavors.
