HerSelf First: Women Supporting Women
HerSelf First encourages women to support, energize, inspire, and build one another up, to form communities, networks, and important connections that help every woman realize her best Self. Women achieve greater degrees of success and personal happiness from working together, staying connected with critical support systems, and making positive contributions that uplift fellow women rather than deride and isolate. HerSelf First aims to educate and empower women to elevate themselves by elevating one another.
HerSelf First was launched in 2011 as a pilot program with Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy,(PPMD), the leading organization in the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. HerSelf First was originally conceived with a focus on caregivers, specifically creating resources to help caregivers focus on their own wellness needs. Currently, HerSelf First is an independent entity broadening its reach to encourage women across all populations and demographics to invest in the realization of their best Selves.
