I am Dorothy Spann, Founder and CEO of Rose of Sharon Women’s Empowerment Center. We are a grassroots non-profit organization focused on supporting homeless single female-headed families, offering community resources and skill building for long-term growth and stability. Last year, we proudly serviced approximately 1,260 families by distributing backpacks, locating temporary housing, supplying gas cards, distributed food, feeding homeless citizens, and played a role in supporting 95 families for our Christmas Toy Giveaway event.

Our mission is to empower women to become the pursuers of their destiny and a catalyst of positive change. Our vision is to be the transitional solution by building healthy relationships and restoring lives through stability and independent living. In addition, equipping disadvantaged women with the fundamental building blocks needed to become empowered women of excellence and impactful game changers among their peers.

We are so proud of the work that we accomplished and are striving to do bigger and better things as we move forward. On a weekly basis, we receive calls from other homeless shelter asking to house several families; However, we do not have the funding to provide permanent housing for the families currently. So, I am here to ask you to help us help others in more meaningful ways. 

Our goal is to secure home(s) to provide a safe and secure environment for women and their children who have recently became homeless. You can learn more about me, Rose of Sharon, our services, and current partners and sponsors by clicking on the tabs above. 

Thank you in advance for your generous donations.
