For the last seven years, Seed of Hope Foundation has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the emotional healing and leadership development of minority, under-represented teenage girls across the US.

Hope in Action

Research shows us children experiencing emotional abuse experience difficulties in adult adjustment. Emotional intelligence is critical to the emotional and leadership development of teenage girls. 

Locally, nationally and internationally, Seed of Hope Foundation is a vocal advocate for the emotional well-being and development of teen girls.
