About

Ladies in the Family Foundation

Ladies in the Family Foundation (LIFF) is a non-profit organization focused on building relationships among immigrant women with a focus on black women and girls, to increase their economic, social and emotional wellness as they navigate building new homes, businesses, and work lifestyles in Canada. LIFF’s goal is not only to connect socially, but also to help women understand and manage the fundamental contributors to the health and quality of their emotional well-being.

We know that when girls and women thrive emotionally, psychologically, economically and socially, families, societies and nations are also thriving. Through LIFF’s mandate, we hope that no voice is left behind, no skill is left untapped, and that stigmas, labels and barriers are removed as women navigate their way towards complete and wholesome wellness.
