What we're about

Welcome!

Our Mission: Blessons for Women provides free mentorship, educational workshops and wellness clinics for all women, in addition to scholarships to disadvantaged, low-income women who are 25 years or older and who have had their higher education interrupted due to challenging life lessons such as; cancer, mental illness, physical or emotional abuse, sex trafficking or who are first generation female immigrants.

Vision: Blessons is a catalyst for transforming and empowering the lives of women who have a vision to succeed inspite of obstacles.

"When you're able to view painful lessons as blessings, they become blessons. Instead of getting back, GIVE back." - Founder, Blessons for Women
