Kim Flores: Her Courageous Story
Single Mothers Outreach Is Proud To Announce The 2017 Collection:
Courageous – Strength In The Face Of Pain Or Grief
Diagnosed with dyslexia and told she’d never succeed as a writer, Kim Flores kept her stories tucked away in her mind and heart for years. When a friend fell very ill, however, Kim stayed by her side, providing selfless care and contemplating her own purpose in life. One night Kim went home and let the words pour out. Finally trusting her own voice and talents, Kim soon self-published her first book. Today, Kim has published four books, one which sits on Amazon’s Top 100 Downloads list. She continues to inspire and mentor other young women writers and pays her success forward by donating proceeds to breast cancer research.
What is Empowering Hearts?
Each year, the Single Mothers Outreach Board of Directors and Empowering Hearts Events Planning Committee has the pleasure of selecting six exemplar women to honor whose life stories embodies the current year’s Empowering Hearts theme. These women are chosen from a pool of nominations that friends, family, and colleagues submit.
Empowering Hearts is an annual celebration of women who have changed lives and shaped their communities. It bridges the worlds of social action and artistic expression in an annual arts competition.
Honorees are nominated by the community and selected by the Single Mothers Outreach (SMO) Board of Directors and Event Planning Committee.
It is SMOs hope that through sharing these powerful stories in word and art, these extraordinary women will impact and inspire others to rise above their own circumstances.
Empowering Hearts is SMO’s signature fundraising event. All proceeds from the event are used to support programs that empower single parents to effectively care for their families.
