Empowering women through community building has always been a value of ours at the I AM LOVE Project and this June we support an organization aligning with that: The Shameless Circle.

The Shameless Circle is a grassroots community organization based in Winnipeg, MB and since its inception in December 2018, their workshops have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response. This volunteer-led healing circle for women aims to end the stigma of shame women experience when they stand up for themselves and their children, and to help them in the pursuit of overcoming that shame.

Our goal is to encourage these women and children to build a community of their own through continued free programming. This organization truly leads by example. Every Sunday, The Shameless Circle comes together as a group to engage with participants in meaningful, self empowering, FREE activities that help them regain their sense of belonging.

In times of high stress or transition, what people need most is someone to share information, sources of supports, and guidance in accessing them. Though Winnipeg has many fantastic services and resources, invisible gaps and barriers do exist.

We believe in making a difference for all women in need from a free hair cute to self-defence. Our organization is committed to helping women overcome barriers and get the help they need to empower themselves. -The Shameless Circle

The Empower Me Fund was born to fill that void: a way to assist women in niche-need situations by providing personalized monetary assistance. Shameless considers any request on a case-to-case basis, and empowers women to access support by assisting them with things like mental wellness, self-care and/or professional development. Rather than providing a handout, the Shameless Circle provides a hand up! Download application here.

We at the I AM LOVE Project are so proud to stand behind you and all you do!
