about s2t

Surviving to Thriving (S2T) women’s mental health meet-up started in June 2021 for the purpose of bringing women together to provide trauma-informed peer led groups that offer mental health support and education, meet-up activities that have therapeutic benefits, plus have the opportunity to serve other organizations that support women. We welcome all women; this includes cis and trans women. S2T provides a safe and welcoming space to any woman looking to improve their mental health and wellness. Our goal is to provide a trauma-informed community where women can come together to support their own healing journey and their neighbors while breaking the stigma surrounding mental health. 

S2T has 3 different meetups that rotate each month.

  • Month 1 will serve as our in-person connection time to come together and “check-in” with our mental health. This will also include mental health/self-care education that can benefit your everyday life.

    • Held at the Heart location with light snacks and refreshments.

  • Month 2 is our meet-up activity. These are held within a 20-mile radius of Phoenixville and include things like hiking, expressive art, museums, garden tours, and more!

  •  Month 3 is our group volunteer month. The women of S2T will volunteer for another organization or event that serves women and pay it forward.

  •  Then we repeat to month 1's activity.

S2T Women's 

volunteer
year 2024 

Join the women of S2T as we bring volunteer days into our programming. This year we'll be splitting our fundraisers with nonprofit organization Along the Way. ATW started by providing free in-home childcare in 2016, serving only low-income single mother families as an anti-poverty initiative. ATW had a theory that if they provided free childcare to single mothers during nights & weekends when they could most readily find employment or take classes to continue their own education, ATW provides the necessary support for the most under-resourced population to break the cycle of poverty for their families.
