Empowerment Through Your Support
Your generosity can light the path toward a better tomorrow for countless children and women. By donating to Emma’s House Inc., you’re not just giving funds; you’re giving hope, empowerment, and the chance for a new beginning.
Confidence is not built through compliments, it’s built through experiences, so I think where we need to focus is on the things we’re doing to provide girls with opportunities to experience success and feel competent and capable.

A national study conducted by the California Black Women’s Health Project (2003) revealed that 60 percent of African American women experience symptoms of depression, but another report revealed that only 12 percent seek help and/or treatment (SOURCE: National Alliance on Mental Illness, 2009).
Along with increased stress levels, more girls—and younger girls—are experiencing symptoms of depression or persistent sadness.
In the 2023 ROX survey, about 40 percent of girls in 8th through 12th grades and about 35 percent in 5th through 7th grades reported feeling depressed at least four days per week. (SOURCE: The Girls’ Index, Ruling Our eXperiences, 2023)
