Our Identifying Projects Are:
- Rape-Crisis: In the Campaign against Sexual Assault of women and girls, it is estimated that 60% of these crimes go unreported because of the social and emotional stigma that sexual assault crimes carry. more
- Harrington House: We work with Harrington House to End Domestic Violence by participating in the Hug a Bear project and distributing the End to Domestic Violence purple cards during the month of October. more
- Bar-O-Boys Ranch: Originally known as Bar-None-Camp, this became our work project in 1955 and for the next two years. more
- Toka: Toka is our newest Identifying Project. Toka is about creating opportunity in Africa, maintaining African tradition and culture, and sharing that culture with America. One of the co-founders of Toka, Bridget Meyer, is a recipient of the Soroptimist Ruby Award at both the Crescent City Club and the Founder Region levels. more
Every Soroptimist participates by donating time and/or money to help our Club buy items for:
- Rape-Crisis Comfort Kits for women and children
- Personal care items for women and children who stay at Harrington House.
- Educational material used at the Bar-O-Boys Ranch.
