Love Thy Neighbor: #BlessingBag
(Hashtag Blessing Bag)
Love Thy Neighbor is a program we have created to feed the hungry in a fun and impactful way. Sharing blessings with our "Hashtag Blessing Bag" full of basic necessities and a meal for nourishment. We create these events as a way to team build and give to those in need TOGETHER! Creating a vibrant atmosphere of music, canvas painting, group interaction and most importantly, assembly of meals and hygienic bags to distribute to those in need within our communities and beyond.
Women Enuff, Inc will bring the Love Thy Neighbor: Hashtag #BlessingBag program to schools, organizations, corporations, families, businesses, etc and facilitate the entire event while everyone involved enjoys their time giving back!

Unmask The Violence / Unmask COVID 9Teen Violence
Unmask The Violence is Women Enuff, Inc's largest initiative that has saved lives beyond a number imaginable. In honor of a great friend of Women Enuff, Inc members, whom was murdered due to domestic violence in May 2016. This initiative provides a platform to allow victims, survivors and supporters to come together and receive resources, advocacy and education.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Unmask The Violence has expanded as the rising numbers of teen dating violence has reached an all time high. We call this initiative "Unmask COVID 9Teen Violence" as this is a project to teach and reach teens throughout Northern Illinois whom are high risk for abuse and/or are currently enduring such abuse. Women Enuff, Inc has provided safe havens and "exit" plans for over 100 families in Illinois since 2018. Our goal is to break the cycle of abuse and educate, advocate and act as a resource to those while they are in their teen stages. We provide services and programs (in-person and virtually / in groups and individually) to assist in self-sufficiency, enhancing self-worth and sustainability. Staffed with professionals and partnered with other organizations to change the narrative of what "love" is in stages! With February being Dating Violence Awareness Month, our efforts will be placed into action!
