Description

Sisters Serving Our Community, Inc.is an organization of African-American women who are commited to giving back to the community, and making an impact on the lives of many. We currently seek new members to join this exciting and positive group of women. Our group recently became an official organization in the State of Virginia, with the Incorporation of Sisters Serving Our Community, Inc. It is our goal to become a non-profit organization in the upcoming year. We have been focused in the DC/VA/MD area, and seek Chapter Chairs. Our primary focus is to be involved in issues that affect us as women in the African-American community, and the promotion of Unity through Sisterhood . We will achieve this mission through our community service efforts, mentoring programs, education and health initiatives, as well as our Sisters Nights Out If you live in the DC Metro area, and this is of interest to you, we would love to have you join us.
