Sister 2 Sister is a safe space for women and young girls. This is our sisterhood. We come together twice a month in person or via zoom to grow and learn from one another. This is a space we as women are able to let our hair down and just be us. It's a judgment free environment and is filled with love and support. We host the Sister-Code Zoom every 1st & 3rd Saturday. (Register on our events page) We also have a sisters group on Facebook where the ladies come together to connect whenever we can. Throughout the year we will host events, give back to our communities by participating in clothes, toys, and food drives. It's an honor to serve those who are in need.

Thank you for taking a moment to visit our website. My team and I work diligently to make sure our day to day operations are unique and personable. I hope that is reflected on our site. I am extremely humbled every day to be apart of something so meaningful, and dear to my heart.
My Sisters Keeper A Sisters Promise Inc. started as a mentoring group. I've been a big sister to every young girl I connected with, which was amazing because the irony is all of my life, all I ever wanted was a big sister. Being the eldest of 6, I wasn't afforded the advantages of most. I used to say I had it rough because my siblings and I were adopted by my grandmother, but now as an adult I understand that was the best thing to ever happen to me.
I had a huge responsibility. At the time I was very angry because of it, but if I knew then what I know now, I'm pretty sure I would have done things much differently.
Learning from my mistakes and helping others not make the same mistakes has been rewarding, to say the least. My relationship with other women I consider my sisters is why I stand strong in My Sisters Keeper A Sisters Promise Inc. We're building a sisterhood unlike anything you've ever experienced. Why do I say that?! Because this sisterhood is well-rounded. Not focused on one entity, we take time in focusing on the whole person. Our mission is to Help, Heal, Love & Build our sisters in every aspect of life. We do this by having programs such as mentoring, women support, community outreach, health and wellness ventures and even spiritual guidance. We also host events for women's empowerment and seminars.
In 2021, We will be adding a program for men as well. This program with be ran by my brother Hasan L. F. Hawkins and is strictly for the fellas. It is called A Brothers Covenant. I am so excited about what ABC will be bringing to our nonprofit organization.
What makes us unique is we are family oriented. Life has taught us some very hard lessons and we want to share that with our communities and abroad. If we have helped 1 person then our mission is not in vain.
