Happy New Year 2018!
Our club’s last program event of 2017 was providing a holiday
dinner party with gifts for the women and their children that are in
the STARS program (Surviving Together, Achieving and Reaching
for Success). STARS is a program of San Diego Youth Services.
STARS provides support for women and transgender women, ages
12-24 who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and
domestic sex trafVicking. SILM has been hosting this holiday party
for STARS for many years. What a great way to end 2017!
In 2018, we are planning to provide opportunities to women
through workshops on various subjects such as public speaking,
woman empowerment, forgiveness and coping skills. The project is
titled WOW (Women’s Opportunity Workshops). Our Virst WOW
event will be January 20, 2018 at San Diego Rescue Mission. Watch
for WOW dates in future Scribbles newsletters and emails.
I am looking forward to starting 2018 and to continue working on
our Mission of “Improving the lives of Women and Girls through
programs leading to social and economic empowerment.”
I hope everyone has a very Happy & Healthy New Year!
