Rising Roses Foundation is a dynamic and compassionate organization dedicated to empowering and supporting teens in foster care, particularly in underserved communities.
Since 2016, we have been a pillar in the community, providing young people with invaluable resources through an enriched, activity-based program taught by experts in various industries, gives them the opportunity to excel in life.
We are proud to have made a positive impact in the lives of young people over the years, and we are equally proud to continue making a positive impact in the years to come.
Motivated by a strong desire to make a positive impact on the world, I founded the Rising Roses Foundation using my own resources. As we progressed, I learned the immense value of community engagement and in-kind donations. By forging partnerships and receiving support from others, we were able to better serve our mentees while minimizing financial strain.
Through our work, we have cultivated relationships with professionals who share our vision and have become invaluable mentors to the young women we serve. With their guidance and expertise, we are empowering our mentees to achieve financial literacy, develop leadership skills, nurture emotional well-being, and pursue fulfilling careers.
As the founder of Rising Roses Foundation, I thank everyone who has supported me, and I look forward to future collaborations to ensure that teens facing adversity have the opportunity to thrive.
Our goal is to ensure a prosperous future for teens within foster care by providing them with an expert-led, activity-based curriculum that emphasizes financial literacy, cultivates leadership skills, and fosters refined emotional intelligence.
We envision a future where every teen in foster care has not only a solid base in financial literacy and leadership, but also the healing needed to build unshakable confidence. This empowers them to navigate both personal and professional arenas with knowledge, self-assurance, and a strong sense of self-worth.
We have consistently grown with the helping hands of our amazing community, willing to volunteer their expertise, time, space, and donations in monetary value for the rise of our roses.
We are proud to share that our foundation's outstanding mentorship services for teens facing adversity have been recognized with a nomination for the 2023 L.O.V.E. (Ladies, Operating, Very, Effectively) Teen Mentorship Award, reflecting our commitment to creating a brighter future for young people.
