Sisters Celebrating Each Other, Inc. is a nonprofit organization for the benefit of single women and single mothers. It was "unofficially" started by Ceola J. in 2009 when she would assist single women and single mothers with various levels of support. She often spent time encouraging and offering the women whatever wisdom and support she had to share. Ceola incorporated the nonprofit in the State of California in August of 2011. In 2013 she began offering services and programs to women in the East Contra Costa County area. These services included the SPF-90 Day Encouragement Program, Hope's Closet, Feed the Family, their annual Easter Basket give away and more.
For seven years, Sisters Celebrating Each Other, Inc. offered their services and programs and collaborated with other local businesses and organizations to reach and support more community residents. Together, they conducted annual clothes drives, backpack giveaway, Christmas toy drives, Thanksgiving dinners, and more. Sisters Celebrating Each Other, Inc. has also worked with the East Contra Costa County's Welfare to Work Program, where they have helped to train and prepare women to enter back into the workforce. Sisters Celebrating Each Other, Inc. partnered with local property owners and community activists to offer women and children safer places for them to live.
