Prime Poway Woman No. 18: Kimberly Weisz

Weisz is the founder of the Operation for HOPE Foundation.

Kimberly Weisz believes five qualities—knowledge, determination, commitment, compassion and patience—can turn any challenge into a reward

Her belief and commitment to the community makes Weisz a Prime Poway Woman.

Weisz is the founder and president of the Operation for HOPE Foundation, a nonprofit “with a mission to raise awareness about domestic violence and the resources available to prevent and respond to this issue.”

“The Operation for HOPE Foundation is my passion because I believe we can prevent and break cycles of violence that would otherwise destroy relationships, families and communities in which we live,” said the mother of 15-year-old triplet boys. “Through awareness, prevention and wrap-around professional services, we can foster healthy relationships in the homes, schools and workplace as domestic violence is a learned behavior.”

Weisz said her best advice to other women is to “love yourself, others and your passion.”

“If you live by this advice, you are sure to successful in all that you want to accomplish in life,” she said.

What does Women’s History Month mean to you?

“It’s difficult to sum up in words the importance and significance of honoring and remembering all women who have given us what we benefit from and enjoy today. I am thankful and grateful for their sacrifices, tenacity and dedication. Women who stand out to me are women who against all odds stand strong and with perseverance stay true to what they know is right. The ones who also do this with limited resources and with unimaginable obstacles are the women who inspire me. It’s impossible to list all of them.”
