2023 Women Helping Women event raises $300,000 for hope and healing to those in need of mental health services

Connie Isaacson, the 2023 Women Helping Women Honoree, gives an awe-inspiring speech to a crowd who gathered together in support of the mission at Mind & Spirit Counseling Center. Connie exemplifies a deep passion for nonprofit organizations, and we are grateful for her service in our community.

Whether you’re new to Women Helping Women, or a longtime supporter, please enjoy highlights from our 2023 luncheon!

Watch the 2023 presentation to experience Connie and Jann’s influential messages that created a renewed sense of purpose and worth.

We gathered 600 people for an inspiring luncheon at Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines on May 19, 2023! A celebration of 25 years of honoring women who inspire with kindness and lead with purpose, we enjoyed a dynamic program from our 2023 honoree, Connie Isaacson, and our keynote speaker Jann Freed, PhD, who inspired us to ponder “What if the rest of your life is the best of your life?”

The energy in the room was palpable as we honored all of the women who have helped make the event a success for the last quarter-century! This year’s event surpassed last year’s record-breaking fundraising total, raising $300,000 to provide services for women, children, and families who otherwise couldn’t access the mental health care they deserve.

Thank you to our 2023 sponsors and donors for supporting our 25th annual Women Helping Women luncheon!

You can make a difference in the mental health of women, children and families!

We look forward to your continued support of our next Women Helping Women annual event! Learn more at Women Helping Women.
