Volume 8 Charity Reveal - Space of Her Own

If you aren’t familiar with our guide, each year we partner with a local charity, honor our new cover color after them and support them throughout the year with a spread in our guide, social media coverage, volunteering, fundraising and more! It is one of our favorite parts of our guide, to shine light on an amazing program! This year we have chosen to work with the amazing Space of Her Own

For 20 years, Space of Her Own (SOHO) has been connecting Alexandria girls with a community of caring adults and providing opportunities to explore a world of possibilities.

SOHO’s programs provide preventative measures, positive experiences and one-to-one mentors that help girls grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. From life lessons that build confidence and resilience, to hands-on art, STEM, and carpentry classes, SOHO girls are transformed. The first-year program culminates in a space transformation that provides participants with a place to truly call their own. The SOHO Club further builds confidence, relationships, and connections to our Alexandria community throughout the years that follow.

SOHO’s programs operate with a small army of volunteer mentors and board members who collectively contribute over 10,000 service hours each year.  

You can support our Alexandria community by investing in some pretty remarkable and very deserving Alexandria girls by applying to mentor and/or by making a donation to support SOHO’s award-winning programs.

Be sure to check out their spread in Volume 8 and stay tuned for more ways to support them throughout the year!
