The main focus of our Poway club is to provide housing for battered women and their children through a program called Transitional Housing. This program moves the mother and children from dependency and abuse to a safe, self-sustaining lifestyle within 18 months. Since 1996, the Poway and Rancho Bernardo clubs have helped over 25 mothers and 60 children reclaim their lives in a positive, supportive environment.
Soroptimist International of Poway (SIP) is also active in a number of other service and community projects, such as providing scholarships to Abraxas High School graduates, recognizing women and girls who are changing the world through community service, donating holiday gifts to children in Tijuana, and collaborating in fundraisers with the local Chamber of Commerce and other service clubs.
We are a friendly bunch of women � very hands on and active in the community. If you are committed to improving the lives of women & girls, want to make a difference in the world, and socialize with like-minded women, we would LOVE to have you as a member.
