About Team WAS
The Mission of Women Achieving Success is to educate, empower, and motivate domestic violence survivors to rebuild their lives, achieve success and break the cycle of abuse and poverty. The Vision of Women Achieving Success is a society free from domestic violence.
Women Achieving Success is a unique program which promotes and facilitates independence, personal growth and success for women and their children who have been victims of domestic abuse. As a grassroots program located in LA, we aim to provide a support system to women and their children that will assist them in their growth socially, emotionally and financially -while providing them with them valuable life skills training to rebuild their lives. During our first year of operation here are a few of our goals: 1. Continue to develop valuable partnerships with existing domestic abuse organization so as to work in continuance of their immediate support of victims; 2. Engage domestic abuse women in our life skills workshop; 3. Identify areas where future financial support will be most beneficial for the personal development of these women and children; and 4. Provide emotional support to children who witnessed domestic abuse. Our ultimate mission is to end the cycle of abuse by not only supporting the women that experience abuse to heal and develop critical life skills but also to provide emotional, healing support to the children so that they can grow and strive!
