The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.

Educate. Seek Truth. Heal.
We Specialize in Stability & Wealth Building.
We aim to be the one-stop shop for all of personal and professional development needs on your journey to stability and wealth. We offer a variety of support for women of ethnic descent to overcome their unique obstacles on their journey to success. What you can expect: the opportunity to connect with others who can help you grow as an individual and build financial wealth--for themselves,their loved ones and their surrounding communities. In addition to offering in-home services, we offer various external services including: [online and in-person) office hours with our mentors, a mentor-ship program with 1:1 coaching, workshops and classes for self development, professional development and community development. We also offer numerous retreats and programs throughout the year.
In response to the need for an educational program that addresses the unique obstacles presented to women of ethnic descent on their journey to success, we have created classes and workshops that outline a model for success specifically for woman of ethnic descent. We also host workshops in communities and in partnership with organizations around the globe.
We regularly create and host monthly, seasonal and annual events where the women we serve and allies can learn, be heard and be inspired on their journey from from struggle to stability. All proceeds support FLP partners and programming, including but not limited to scholarships & grants. We also host an online Facebook community that supports women looking to escape struggle, find stability and build wealth.
Heal & Thrive.
It is often the case that the women we serve are hardworking and willing to do what it takes to build a better future for themselves and their loved ones, but they have no mentor to turn to on a regular basis for 1:1 support and specialized guidance. Our handpicked mentors can support you anywhere with our online service option, in-home service option, or you can schedule a visit with us in office.
First Ladies of Poverty Foundation Chapters are locally accessible resource hubs for you to connect and get involved with ambitious and talented women in your area seeking to build stability and wealth. FLP Chapters also serve as hubs for you to learn about all that the FLP family has to offer and is the most reliable way to learn more about our grant and scholarship opportunities (outside of our social media pages). There are also leadership, community and resume building opportunities exclusively for chapter leaders and their members.
The Ladies (and Men) of the First Ladies of Poverty Foundation
I have been very lucky to have you as my mentor, and you have not only overseen the growth of my projects, but my growth as a person. You are one of the kindest, most giving and passionate people I have had the pleasure of knowing, and I want to thank you for all of your tireless over the past few months--for giving golden life advice, for teaching me to follow my passions and stay authentic to myself.
