Mary J. Blige
In 2007, Mary J. Blige helped found the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, Inc.
“Mary hopes to help these women overcome the difficulties they face in their lives and to provide them with the drive and confidence to pursue – and realize – their goals and dreams,” FFAWN’s site reads.
In 2009, she also opened a center for women in Yonkers, New York. According to the site, the facility provides “a supportive environment with components aimed at enhancing the educational, vocational, parenting, health, and life skills of the participants.”
