SARASOTA, Fla. – Co-founders Breanna Choat and Katherine Powell of Freedom Fellows, a startup nonprofit dedicated to ending youth homelessness by empowering foster care and homeless youth, recently rebranded the nonprofit to She Rises.
The transition will better align with the local need to focus on young women in the foster care and emergency care system.
“To better serve the young women in our program, we chose a brand that represents our mission and the empowerment we want these young women to feel,” said Powell.
She Rises works with young women in Sarasota to build independent living skills through personalized internships, professional skill building exercises and provide a community where young women can come to learn from successful, professional women in a class setting.
“With this rebrand, we hope to help to better serve Sarasota’s homeless and foster care young women, partner with the Sarasota business community for professional opportunities and provide education tailored toward young women,” said Choat.
