Ladies in the Family Foundation
Ladies in the Family Foundation (LIFF) is a non-profit organization that focuses on building a strong support network to strengthen the core relationships that women have.
LIFF believes that women can support each other while leveraging resources from other groups that support women in our community. We are a premier women organization whose key focus is to improve our social consciousness, bridge cultural disparities and address issues that are pertinent to the development of healthy relationships with and for women. We want to listen and understand one another regardless of our diverse viewpoints on issues that are common to women.
As a society, we hope to demonstrate social intelligence as we have open discussions on sensitive issues that impact our emotional wellbeing as a result of our upbringing, individual experiences, and the environments we find ourselves.
As Ladies in the Family, we intend to use our hearts and hands to provide emotional support to women by having discussions on “hush-hush” issues in a fun and non-judgmental environment.
