Training, Education & Enterprise
A Beautiful Me CLOSET Mission:
Teaching life-long business skills and philanthropy to maximize the success of young women, and provide sustainability for local A Beautiful Me programs.
We are grateful for those who also see our vision for the community. These formal endorsements are from: Dan Casey, St. Clair County EDA, CEO; Pauline Repp, Port Huron, Mayor; Thelma Castillo, Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce, President & CEO; Jamie S. Cain, Port Huron Schools, Superintendent.
“We welcome the A Beautiful Me Closet and the endeavor of building up entrepreneurs in our community through their program. A Beautiful Me is one of the first tenants in the Underground Incubator, we believe that their new project (ABMe Closet) will also be a destination in St. Clair County.”
“Building self-esteem and philanthropists are values we need to instill in our future community of women. Confidence and generosity is a necessity that A Beautiful Me Closet can offer our community.”
“The Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce supports the A Beautiful Me Closet and we believe their new project is worth investing in. Others should entrust in our youth and future business owners.”
“Port Huron Area Schools has seen what A Beautiful Me self-esteem workshops have done for our students over the past years. This new project – A Beautiful Me Closet – is the next step to equip our youth with life-skills and educational support. We are thankful for the vision and ministry of A Beautiful Me through A Beautiful Me Closet.”
Self-esteem needs to be fostered in young women. We are confident that the ABMe Closet can assist in this great need by using special occasion dresses as a vehicle for the solution in the community through three avenues:
1.) Entrepreneur Training Program
2.) Philanthropy Education
3.) Social Enterprise / Retail Destination
To substantiate our project from idea to a business plan we conducted small focus groups with many discussions among local officials, leaders, business owners, Chamber of Commerce, and Economic Planning & Development of St. Clair County.
