Together She Can, 501(c)3, is a nonprofit organization that strives to improve the quality of life for women experiencing homelessness by providing them with hygiene and beauty products to better their health, wellness, and allow them the opportunity to feel like themselves again.
"Everyone deserves to have their basic human needs fulfilled. Being clean and feeling attractive is critical component in the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of a person. We are grateful that we are able help restore that to people in our communities."
In June of 2016, Madeleine Park (our Founder & CEO) was cleaning and organizing her home when she noticed an abundance of extra toiletry and beauty supplies lying around. Feeling there was a better place for them, she created small parcels containing shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, lotion, tampons, sample perfume, and makeup. She then packaged them up with tissue paper and an encouraging note. She then solicited help from her friends and family, and asked them to donate their extra toiletries. From there she was able to create over 100 small packages and gift them to homeless women and shelters in her community. Seeing the large need for such fundamental items led Madeleine to continue her efforts towards improving the lives of homeless women.
From there, Together She Can and the mini gift boxes were born. Today, Together She Can has donated over 3,000 gift boxes and provided over 50 Life Programs to women and shelters in and around the Greater Boston area.
We are proud to be an official 501(c)3 nonprofit.
