WHO ARE WE?

House of Shine is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to develop confident, engaged women and children by providing leadership programs that raise self- awareness and are creative and experiential in nature. By helping individuals identify their SHINE, women and children from all walks of life are inspired to ignite their power within and, ultimately, change their world for the better.

So... What is Shine?

Built upon the premise that each of us is uniquely wired to make a contribution, the shine philosophy works to help deconstruct where a person’s uniqueness lies and how he or she might best apply it. We start by doing a deep dive into the five things we believe matter most:

Strengths

Are recurring patterns in thoughts, feelings, or behaviors.

Hobbies

Are the ways we choose to spend free time.

Interests (Irritants)

Are topics for which we have raised awareness. Irritants are issues about which we care deeply.

Needs

Are those personal values and beliefs that we most need to honor.

Experiences

Are the series of good, bad, and indifferent events in our lives.

Serving Up Programs!

When you shine, the world takes notice. We encourage you to share your inner light with random acts of kindness that go above and beyond the ordinary. Our programs for women and educators offer opportunities to make a positive impact on others.
