Sherelle Reed - Find Your Resilience Inc

A nonprofit organization

We hold multiple events throughout the year to aid in empowering women and girls.

Our prom dress drive "Dresses for Dolls" is an event where high school seniors can pick a dress from a large selection. In 2018, we gave dresses away to 112 girls at the Boys and Girls Club of Collin County. In 2019, we gave dresses away to 109 girls in Dallas ISD. We currently rely on donations of gently used gowns from the public to accumulate our dress selection. Looking ahead, our goal is to receive sponsorships from various boutiques a dress stores to be able to provide girls a selection of brand new dresses, or a gift card to a boutique should they not find a dress they like. We also plan to give away day-of makeup appointments free of charge to offset other prom costs.

Our vision board parties "Love on Your Vision" for individual women and "Coupled Vision" for couples serviced 50 women in 2018, and 52 women in 2019; as well as 30 couples in 2019. For these events, we provide supplies as well as guided discussion for our attendees to create a vision board with both long term and short term goals for their life. At the end, we encourage them to take their vision boards home and hang it in a place that allows them to frequently see their goals. We are currently relying to registration fees to pay for the supplies.

Our 'Sista I Got U Covered' empowerment luncheon is our biggest annual event. In 2018, we had 100 ladies attend; and in 2019, we had 97 ladies attend. During this luncheon, we have a interactive games, panel discussion as well as a guest speaker. We also have various vendors of women to promote and sell products from their vendors. The guests are served a three-course meal. We are currently relying registration to pay the speakers and provide the meal. We are also using vendor registration as a fundraising opportunity. In addition to that, each vendor donates an item to raffle off to the guests.

Our back to school wellness checks gives students free physicals from doctors, and school supplies ahead of returning to school for the year. This offsets costs for parents, mostly single mothers, who have kids in sports and have to pay for their annual physicals. In 2019, we served 114 students. We currently fund our own school supplies and backpacks, in addition to school supply donations. We also rely on pro-bono service from medical doctors to conduct the physicals.

This is only the tip of the iceberg of what we do throughout the year!

Our Needs

Our current needs are monetary funds to continue to be able to put on our events and make them event better. We would also like to invest more in the promotion and publicizing of our events to reach more people, rather than the current word of mouth that we rely on. With an increase in funding, we can provide more take-home benefits to all that come to our events. Our goal is that our events and outreach programs are a consistent empowering atmosphere for all who attend. We have been making do with the fundraising that we have been doing, but we are ready to take our community service, outreach and events to the next level and reach more women and girl. We need more funds to do so.
