Northshore Women for H.O.P.E. thrives on member participation! We offer something for everyone!

  • Regularly scheduled gatherings, usually including dinner and cash bar
  • Volunteer activities
  • Leadership opportunities on our Board and Committees
  • Inclusion in our directory, including your own website link
  • Access to NSW for HOPE private Facebook Group

Members can participate in as many or as few events as they wish.

An important 2014 goal is to increase member support of student held events, below.

Because of the diverse talents and skills represented in our unique group, members often meet outside our organized meetings to network, partner on business opportunities, or just have a cup of coffee!

“When our diverse and talented members meet, ideas flow and the energy is absolutely infectious. We not only support women and young girls in need, we support each other! It’s a very powerful force, not to be underestimated!”

Susan Wilson
