About

The United Way launched its Women's Initiative in 2000. Its intent was to explore what resources women can bring to bear, financial and non-financial, to influence issues in our community. The overall theme of the initiative is empowering women to enable them to meet their basic needs, capture by the tagline: "Women building community and empowering lives."

Efforts of the Women's Initiative are focused in three areas: volunteerism, fund raising and special events.

Volunteerism: promote opportunities for women to volunteer together and with their families. Group projects are offered including: food drives, painting at a women's health agency, sorting donated coats, yard work at a half way house for women recovering from substance abuse.

Fundraising: an annual event is held each April to raise funds to support projects in the community that support the theme of empowering women to meet their basic needs.

Special events: sponsorship of educational events featuring topics of interest to women. Recent events include: financial planning, technology and diversity.
