Our Impacts

Since Shakti Rising’s inception, we have built a powerful track record of success – impacting the lives of more than 1,000 women. Shakti has established a reputation in the community based on the integrity of service provision, the leadership of staff and graduates, and an 80% success rate with a population dealing with multiple addictions, co-existing mental and physical health issues, histories of traumatic occurrences, and prior treatment failures. Although Shakti Rising is committed to serving women in the local community, approximately 30% of the women in the residential program come from out-of-state. Our unique model and high success rate have drawn interest across the country, creating opportunities for replication and partnership in other states. Shakti’s innovative evaluation standards have become an exemplar in the San Diego community, referenced by prominent funders as a best practice in both design and execution.
