How We Help

Our Mission

 Phoemale is a non-profit organization created by and for women. We help those who have overcome domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and/or homelessness rebuild their lives, and like the Phoenix, rise from the ashes. 

A Different Kind of Charity

At Phoemale, any costs associated with our charity or events are paid for by the board members.  This means that 100% of the money raised at our events is used to directly help women survivors. 

 


More About the Women We Help

 

Phoemale partners with area shelters and non-profits that provide continuing support for women who have had these challenges. These partner organizations have social workers/counselors who identify and nominate women to Phoemale based on specific criteria: 


​Phoemale helps women who are... 


#1 Brave. Overcame Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Human Trafficking, Homelessness 


#2 Strong. Is able and determined to rebuild her life. 


#3 Strategic. Has a plan for rebuilding her life. 


#4 Needs a hand up. Has a gap in the plan to rebuild her life that no other charity can fill.
