Chair – Gigi Suntum
SIS receives numerous requests for specific, difficult to fund situations. For example, we fulfilled the request of two young, new mothers who had given birth to help them return to their home. We also assisted with funding for a group of women in Indiantown for training in sewing arts, culinary arts, and secretarial services. We have raised funds to build a home locally for victims of human trafficking. SIS conducts frequent drives to secure personal items and clothing for women in transition from addiction and women who are victims of human trafficking. Partnering with Safe Space, SIS members also conduct “table talks” for women who are the victims of abuse on topics such as finance, interviewing, resume writing, and finding and securing housing. In addition, we help women in need to continue their education.
