Empowering vulnerable girls and inspiring women and the community through arts, carpentry, and creative one-to-one mentoring
Each program year ends with a Community Celebration to honor the accomplishments and creativity of each child who participates in SOHO. Discover SOHO’s successes:
We envision a strong sisterhood…
To reach girls in need and prevent juvenile criminal involvement.
To engage all participating youth in art and carpentry projects as outlets for self-expression and creativity.
To empower youth to see the arts as an endeavor at which all can succeed.
To increase participating girls’ self-esteem, help them recognize their strengths and develop their sense of self.
To cultivate life skills, including:
- Positive communication
- Anger management
- Conflict resolution
- Healthy eating

To provide every participant with a personalized Space of Her Own that encourages creativity, conveys a sense of value and serves as a lasting reminder of her circle of support and care
To have a lasting impact by fostering one-to-one mentor and peer group relationships beyond the one-year program
