Sponsor a Program
Our work is intentional in how it covers a broad spectrum of wellness for Women of Color. We aim to inspire wellness through a variety of healing modalities, and we do this through our mindfulness, body and spirit programs. Every dollar that is contributed to our organization, goes directly to funding classes, workshops, special events and other opportunities to give power to the Women of Color in our community.
Our goal is to see Women of Color prioritizing the practices of wellness, not only in our programs but incorporating it into their daily lives. With the daily trauma that comes from being a person of color, we believe we offer an environment that is sought out but not easily accessed.
This is the work of House of Yoni. To create those opportunities by providing the spaces and practices to serve a community who is seeking exactly what we are offering.
