The Women's Connection is a neighborhood center in Price Hill that has served Cincinnati's west side since 1997. Our educational and support programs help the women and girls of our communities find the Strength, Pride, and Hope they need to overcome life's many challenges. Every positive step our participants take helps create better futures for themselves, their families, and the neighborhoods in which we live.
To understand what it means to have Strength, to have Pride, or to have Hope, we asked a few of our participants for their thoughts. What we heard was powerful, as you will begin to see below.
We invite you to join the conversation by sharing your own ideas - on this site, on our Facebook page, or come on over to our center. We also invite you to come learn more at an upcoming Preview event, or to help us continue to grow with your donation.
"Strength is realizing that you are not alone and that you can make it through because others have too."
"Strength is having the will power to set goals and stick to them."
"Strength is to be bendable, but unbreakable no matter the obstacle or struggle."
"Pride is believing in yourself again.
"Pride is working hard and accomplishing things that you never thought you would be able to accomplish."
"Pride is not giving up. It is to go through hell and come out on the other side with your head held high."
"Hope is knowing that I will make it better for the next generation."
"Hope is seeing that a great future is possible, and is within my reach."
"Hope is knowing that there is a place in the world for me and people that want to be a part of my life."
