I Am Woman Proverbs 31 Ministry, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. In operation since 2014, we follow the vision given by God to create a network of women in leadership roles. We strive to minister and provide services to those who are broken, lost, confused or seeking refuge.
Using the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we minister and encourage women to realize and accept that Jesus is the answer to all of their challenges. Women in leadership will share their experiences and testimonies to empower women. Through empowerment, these women will have hope and strength to be successful in their endeavors.
"I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them."
Our mission is to encourage and support the growth of all young girls to make positive life choices and to grow into successful and ambitious young women.
Meet Our Founder
Marielle is a social worker and community organizer with more than 20 years of experience in the social services industry. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from York College – CUNY and Master of Social Work from Hunter College – CUNY School of Social Work.
“Community” and “resources” are two words you will frequently hear from the mouth of Marielle. She believes that “without a network of people and information, there wouldn’t be a community, nor would there be resources to share with the people who are in need.”
What this means is that it is important for people with a wealth of knowledge, compassion, and resources to network and spread the good to those in need. Whether they are a child, woman, or man, they will all benefit from all the resources.
Leadership and mentoring program is committed to promote and create positive change. We
envision that the girls in the community will be empowered to reach their full potential in becoming educated, strong, and influential young women in leaderships.
