Empowering Women To Live Their Dreams
We are a collective of diverse women in and around Sacramento with a wide range of ages, cultures, and professions. The one goal we share is to foster a sisterhood that commits to realizing economic opportunities for women and girls of all statures through training, education, and connection to local organizations that embody the spirit of Soroptimist.
If you are interested in joining the Greater Sacramento Soroptimist Group, we invite you to join us at any of our upcoming events, talk to a team leader or email us for more information. Joining this organization of hundreds of local women supporting women is a choice that will reward you for life.
How we empower women & girls
Our focus is on education because educated women and girls are:
less vulnerable to sex traffickers
more likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return
able to access healthcare
less likely to live in poverty
able to raise stronger, healthier families
Women's Empowerment educates and empowers women who are homeless with the skills and confidence to acquire a job, create a healthy lifestyle, and regain a home for themselves and their children. SIGS has a very close, long standing relationship with this organization. Their community services embody everything that Soroptimist stands for.
Valentines Lunch for Mustard Seed: SIGS gives from the heart by providing Valentine’s lunch for the children at Mustard Seed. In addition to lunch, Valentine inspired goodies and crafts are provided so that the children know what a special treat Valentine's Day can be for family and friends.
Wellspring Women’s Center: Wellspring Women’s Center in Sacramento’s Oak Park neighborhood, nurtures the innate goodness and personal self-esteem of women and their children. They serve nearly 200 women and children each weekday and offer four different programs: the Nutritious Meal Program, the Children's Corner Program, the Safety Net Services Program, and the Women's Wellness Program. Our Club efforts include, but are not limited to donating backpacks full of hygiene products for Wellspring to distribute to those in need.
Koinonia: During its 39-year history, Koinonia’s caring and compassionate staff and families have helped thousands of needy children begin a new life by facilitating foster, adoption opportunities and Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs. Its headquarters is located in Loomis, California, a small suburban community located about 25 miles northeast of Sacramento. Koinonia’s growth has expanded across California and Nevada to better serve the community. In 2020, SIGS used endowment funds to purchase a $10,000.00 laser cutter for their on-site training and education center.
Sacramento Food Bank: A place for hope and prosperity, a place where women and men, children and elders, are offered the tools they may need—food, clothes, education, technology, or just plain kindness—as they move toward a path of financial independence and self-sufficiency. Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) has evolved from a food pantry to a provider of services for lifelong Sacramento residents—as well as refugees and immigrants who wish to make Sacramento their home. In the past, SIGS has provided home kits for refugees and coordinated a children’s blanket drive in honor of the 100th Anniversary for Soroptimist International of the Americas.
Backpacks 4 WEAVE:The campaign to Stop Human Trafficking has been at the forefront of our community's needs for many years. SIGS has revamped their Backpacks for Mercy program to focus our efforts to support WEAVE. We provide backpacks containing basic amenities as needed for trafficked women and girls who are brought to WEAVE for care and support. The cry for support is made and we proudly answer that call.
With help from our members, clubs, supporters and donors, we’re making dreams come true for women & girls.
