Presenting Your Best Work · Business Presentation & Project Development Services

As we mark our 10th year of service and support to single mothers in the Hampton Roads communities of Virginia, Journey For Success is proud to host the inaugural Legendary Pearls Gala and introduce our annual award of the same name. The event has 3 purposes. First, we will honor a distinguished group of women for their professional achievements and community leadership.  Despite the challenges of being single mothers, these ladies demonstrated tenacity, perseverance, courage, inspiration, and innovation.  We consider these women role models (our "Pearls") for younger generations of mothers navigating through similar circumstances. Second, we will increase awareness and inform the community about the plight of single mother lead households and the organization's efforts to transform families. 
And lastly, the Legendary Pearls Gala & Awards is the flagship fundraising event of Journey For Success and provides funding for our programs and services.
I invite you to join us on October 6th and 7th for a black-tie celebration and a flurry of activity and entertainment. Meet us at The Main!

Journey For Success is the evolution of Still Hope Foundation, Inc.  The organization was established in October, 2007 in an effort to lighten the parenting responsibilities borne by single mothers throughout the Hampton Roads, Virginia communities. 
The organization's goal is to equip single mothers with those tools that will enable them to become self-sufficient leaders of their households.

Through the provision of an educational certificate program and supportive mentoring relationships, women are elevated and empowered to move forward and navigate a successful path for themselves and their families.  Journey For Success - a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit public charity - seeks to ensure that every mom has the opportunity to build and maintain a successful family unit.

While our clientele of mothers parenting alone varies by circumstance, from teen or divorced mothers, to widowed women, we believe that any mother, irrespective of her socio-economic status, religion, or race, can benefit from the guidance and support provided via Journey For Success.
About Us
Our Program
Our certificate curric‍‍‍ulum concentrates on seven (7) areas of focus to ensure that women are afforded the opportunity to enhance their own lives while strengthening their families. They are: Discovery, Health & Wellness, Child Development, Career Development, Financial Advancement, Social Impact & Interaction, and Communication. To enhance the mother's experience and further ensure her success, we solicit community volunteers who are willing to work alongside program participants as Development Coaches (Mentors). 
At Journey For Success we forge vital partnerships with other community organizations to hosting various events to benefit individuals and families in the Hampton Roads Area.
We welcome and appreciate your willingness to volunteer your time and/or make a donation. Please contact us for more information.
