To empower survivors of child sexual abuse through a 5 day clinically supervised healing retreat where they will find the support, connection and love needed to catapult their healing journey to experience profound transformation in their lives.
Mission Driven Retail
The way we operate is slightly different from most businesses, and we like it that way. U Grow Girl is a Community Contribution Company (CCC), a hybrid corporation that bridges the gap between for-profit companies and non-profit organizations.
Why did we choose to incorporate as a CCC?
CCC's are cause-driven and set up to achieve a social impact. As survivors, we are uniquely connected to our cause.
A CCC helps to eliminate the constant struggle to fundraise.
Unlike non-profit's, Community Contribution Companies aren't solely reliant on donations to operate. By creating a sustainable business model and fiscally committing 60% we can self-fund our cause for years to come.
As a CCC we must donate 60% of our profits to our cause. Our cause, helping survivors heal by gifting them free attendance to the Time To Heal Retreat.

Our Community Impact
Our goal is to create an inclusive community for adult female survivors of child sexual abuse centred around healing and empowerment. At U Grow Girl, we empower survivors by gifting them attendance to the Time To Heal Retreat, where we arm them with the tools they need to catapult their healing journey.
We believe that when you heal a woman, you heal a community. We believe that when you heal a survivor, you heal future generations and help to break the cycle of abuse.
1 in 4 women experiences sexual abuse before the age of 18. Given that 79% of survivors never disclose, these numbers are said to be much higher. We have a lot of women to help!
