Celebrating International Women’s Day

SHARE

Today is International Women’s Day! The theme for this year is #EmbraceEquity, a theme that sits at the very heart of our mission.

Through our programs and investments, we aim to build a more inclusive and equitable community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Whether it’s providing women-owned businesses with personalized, one-on-one business consulting or helping young women transitioning from the child welfare system reach their educational goals — we help women on their path to economic freedom, so they can become agents of change in their own lives and for their children.

Because of your support of our Women United Initiative, we provided 7,500 women and children with access to life-changing resources like stable housing, early childhood education, workforce training, education support and more during our 2021-2022 fiscal year. We have recently invested over $175,000 in incredible community programs, and look forward to sharing more about the impact this investment is having on the lives of the women we serve.

​​​​​​This International Women’s Day, we are so grateful for you. With every dollar invested or volunteer hour given, ​​​​​​you are contributing to a more vibrant and equitable community. ​​​​​

Join us in embracing equity by learning more about your impact and how you can continue to support women and girls. Don’t miss our Women United Village this spring where we will connect hundreds of families with essential baby supplies, like diapers, car seats, cribs and more.
