In urban communities like the Tenderloin, women and girls encounter unique obstacles that perpetuate a cycle of isolation. Poverty and exploitation prevent women and girls from dreaming of a better future, and the needs of these women and girls are consistently unseen and underserved.
We are here to change that.
We believe lasting change comes through love.
Through relationship, we remind women and girls of their true and intrinsic value, develop creative skills to stop cycles of poverty and violence, and highlight new possibilities for growth and change.
BJM has been present and invested in the Tenderloin for more than 10 years.
Every year, our community of dancers receives more than 20,000 minutes of dance instruction and mentoring.
Every month, we serve more than 100 women and girls.
Every week, our mothers' program and ESL class engage 35 neighborhood families.
