An Important Announcement.
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Charlee Newman, founder of the Rise of Broken Women. Charlee was loved by so many people. Unfortunately, neither Charlee nor her sister have the funds for her cremation and memorial service.
If you could please help us, it would mean the world!
Everything at RBW is designed to support the specific needs of the women and families experiencing homelessness. We can rise together and help this vulnerable population out of poverty by providing for their basic necessities while they work on integral changes to overcomes institutionalization and move forward with their lives.
RBW envisions a world where women are capable of exiting the cycle of poverty without having to go through the parrels of navigating all the resources to meet that end. We partner with homeless shelters and low-income communities in order to reach all women and families in New York City looking for a permanent exit strategy from the cycle of poverty.
We were able to provide over 200 families throughout 101 homeless shelters in New York City with menstrual products, toiletries, Christmas toys, winter coats, shoes, school supplies, and other basic necessities. We will continue to provide these necessities and workforce development services to support women and girls with the help from our generous sponsors and individual donations and support.
