About Us

The SHE RECOVERS® FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity with a growing and evolving community currently consisting of more than 325,000 women – and non-binary individuals who identify with women’s communities.

Our Mission is to inspire hope, reduce stigma and empower women in or seeking recovery for mental health issues, addiction, and other life challenges to increase their recovery capital, heal themselves, and help others to do the same.

Our lifeline organization connects women through its virtual platforms and in-person community networks, provides resources, supports women to develop their own holistic recovery patchworks, and empowers them to thrive and share their successes.

To ensure that the movement is inclusive of all women and non-binary individuals who identify with women’s communities, the Foundation focuses on prioritizing the needs of individuals from historically underserved populations including women of color, LGBTQI+ individuals, women veterans, and differently-abled women.

You have a creative spirit and love to grow along with ever-changing technology.

You are a brand strategist known for creating equally functional, beautiful, and approachable design that inspires and informs. Creating memorable brands driven by clear values, tone, and consistency is of utmost importance to you.
