Women and Minorities Business Resource Guide

As a woman and minority business owner, I am familiar with the many hardships that entrepreneurs face daily while operating on a limited budget. After all, TreeHouse cleaning was established with only $20. Now more than ever we need financial security to not only sustain, but scale our business during these unprecedented times. Therefore, this resource page was developed with you in mind. We want to help you become the best version of yourself as we stand firmly behind our mission to empower you to Live, Grow, and Go!
