Hi! I’m Dorothy Spann, Founder and CEO of Rose of Sharon, a Women’s Empowerment Center. We are a grassroots non-profit organization focused on supporting single, female headed households build skills and obtain resources for short-term relief and long-term growth and stability. Last year, we proudly serviced approximately 1,260 families by distributing backpacks, locating temporary housing, supplying gas cards, distributing food, feeding homeless citizens, and we played a role in supporting 55 families enjoy a Merry Christmas.
Our mission is to empower women to become the pursuers of their destiny and a catalyst of positive change. We are very proud of the work that we accomplished in 2020 and we are striving to do bigger and greater things now and moving forward. I am here to ask you to help us help others in more meaningful ways. Our goal is to secure a home to provide a safe and secure environment for up to four women with children who have become homeless.
