Eastside Non-Profit hosts first Young Women's Conference at
Sam Houston High School May 26, 2018
Team Action, Help Raise 1 Help Save 1 is a mentor program and non-profit organization that strives to provide youth with the necessary resources to develop into resilient individuals that exemplify all the pillars of Character Counts. The non-profit, Help Raise 1 Help Save 1 was founded by Lynn Harris a single mom of 4, who saw the desperate need to help our youth.
This program focuses on young ladies on the East Side of San Antonio. Help Raise 1 Help Save 1 Mentors 21 Mente's from Sam Houston High School, Davis Middle School, East Central High School and Legacy Middle School. We mentor these young ladies every other Saturday where conversations and support is in abundance when having difficult conversations from Self-Worth to Teen Pregnancy.
Ms. Ellen Davis, East Side Community Resident stated,
"I've seen Ms. Harris drive anywhere from 6-15 girls to school each day and pick them all back up, I'm not sure how she does it. I hope the community rallies around these young women and this organization, this is what we need to make our young women's future brighter."
This year Help Raise 1 Help Save 1 was asked to host the First Young Women's Conference on May 26, 2018 at Sam Houston High School. This conference's topic will be- Defining The Woman In You.

Ms. Lynn Harris, Founder of Help Raise 1 Help Save 1 said, "The mission of the Young Women's Conference is to get positive information to help our young ladies to know their self-worth, get as much information to our young ladies as we can so they are armed with the knowledge and support they need to reach the height of who they can and want to be. These girls need to know they are not limited to what society believes they are capable of, because they are capable of so much more."
