SGP Youth Scholarship Summit
This is a $100 grant for all that qualify. See if you qualify below.
With trying times like this global pandemic woman and mothers have taken on more duties than ever and take less time for themselves. Yes, its important to take care of family, work, and other obligations, but its even more important to take care of YOU! We’ve provided financial support to women across Los Angeles County for their rent, bills, groceries, professional development, and transportation needs since 2019. What’s remained consistent is that the women we helped often would not ask for help to provide extra care for themselves. What is something you want to do or need to take care of you? Give you joy? Give you a peace of mind or break? Most of what they shared with us would cost less than $100. Examples included a new comforter, hair products, new underwear, body wash, fresh vs frozen fruit, and dinner out with their kids. We know $100 isn’t a lot of money, what we hope is that it’ll give women the opportunity to take care of some of their self-care needs.
