Who are We and What is Courage in Action?

We are a not for profit charitable organization helping women coming from difficult circumstances move forward in their lives.  Our goal is to provide our participants with the tools, motivation and hope that uplifts and inspires them to create new or different outcomes.

We accomplish this through educational sessions, one day conferences with presentations, workshops and activities presented by professional women. Many of the women who volunteer come from similar backgrounds and have moved beyond their situation, in other words they “walk the talk”.

The programs and conferences are free to members of Courage in Action and is operated by volunteers with the aid of very generous sponsors.  Our conferences and programs are provided by passionate speakers and interactive activities. Our conferences also include healthy choices for breakfast, lunch and snacks throughout the day.

Registered Charity Number: 711664482RR0001
