Pillars of Light and Love is a 501c3 non-profit launched in March of 2015 by Kathy Opperman. The main focus of the non-profit is Stress and Life Management for all ages. Pillars offers free workshops to educate children, teens and adults to reduce stress, have strong self-esteem, overcome anxiety and depression, build confidence, and achieve better coping techniques, positive communication skills, and healthy relationships. We believe education will help bring awareness and improve the lives of those experiencing challenges such as depression, eating disorders, bullying, addictions, stress disorders, relationship issues, a difficult diagnosis, and emotional and physical abuse. Donations raised for Pillars are also used to provide free services at the Empowering U Center in Trappe. Free services are available for those with serious illnesses, such as Cancer and MS, as well as for Caregivers of those with Special Needs and Disabled Veterans. Donations provide them with Massage, Life Coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping, Myofascial Release for Chronic Pain, EMDR Therapy, and more. These services are also available to the paying public.

Julia's Joy was created in May of 2017, you can learn more about Julia's story at www.JuliasJoy.org.
