Our His­tory


The Cen­ter for Remark­able Women is a 501c(3) non­profit orga­ni­za­tion, that empow­ers and equips women to live life on pur­pose and with pur­pose. Through empow­er­ment ini­tia­tives we seek to encour­age women, young girls and their fam­i­lies in a lov­ing and sup­port­ive environment.

The Cen­ter is an out­growth of the Remark­able Women Min­istry which is now one of the empow­er­ment ini­tia­tives under the Cen­ter for Remark­able Women. The vision­ary for the Remark­able Women Min­istry is Rev. Valerie Pear­son and it began as a pilot pro­gram in the New Psalmist Bap­tist Church in Bal­ti­more in 2006. After suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion for four years the min­istry moved from the church to stand on its own in order to reach more women. Using the Remark­able Women Min­istry, God has trans­formed the lives of hun­dreds of women over five years. Many women from the pro­gram have gone on to write books, attain higher degrees of edu­ca­tion and pur­sue small busi­ness ven­tures. For some, the trans­for­ma­tion is as pro­found as con­nect­ing with a par­ent or loved one for the first time in years. Women have real­ized that pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less when you set out to achieve your full potential.

Through the Remark­able Women Min­istry, women have touched the lives of home­less women at My Sister’s Place in Bal­ti­more, run suc­cess­ful win­ter coat dri­ves and orga­nized Christ­mas Fel­low­ships at senior hous­ing devel­op­ments.

The Cen­ter for Remark­able Women was birthed from the idea that not only do we want to trans­form the lives of women but also we desire to touch and trans­form the lives of young girls and senior women. With the real­iza­tion of the Cen­ter, we can reach more women and impact their fam­i­lies. The pro­grams that are planned will include Par­ent­ing Pro­grams, Youth Pro­grams and Young Adult Pro­grams. Under the lead­er­ship of Rev. Valerie S. Pear­son, The Cen­ter for Remark­able Women will be a hub for all women.
