Here at A Bella LaFemme Society, we are driven to do our part of making an impact on the lives we are committed to serving. We are a newly incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Our society's mission is dedicated to providing collegiate minority women with scholarships to promote mental wellness. We are structured to empower, alleviate hardships, and to build resourceful sisterhoods within our communities.
The scholarships can be applied to any area of life the recipient desires. We support our Bella's and have the faith that each will make practical use of the funding.
How did ABLS come to be, you may wonder...Well in my years of attending college and volunteering in the community, I noticed a void in support for minority women. This void is critical as it relate to mental health. This observation manifested over the years and my passion to reach as many lives I could, grew! This society have been a vision since 2012. We are living in a world where minorities are dying at alarming rates due to social injustices. When one of us is murdered, we all mourn. This creates an unbalance, clinical depression, anxiety, insomnia and suicidal thoughts. We need more outlets and advocacy. We need loyalty and realness as we travel on our paths in life. I personally commit to promote and advocate internal wellness through my organization.
