This Year's Project: Strategies for Stability


About Our Organization

Women Aware's mission is to transform the emotional and economic future of individuals in transition through a comprehensive service delivery program of advocacy, education, information and referral. A special emphasis is placed on increasing financial stability and maximizing the earning capacity of single heads of households.



Current Project: Strategies for Stability



Women Aware is a United Way agency that works to connect women and men who are living “on the edge” to the resources they need to become productive and stable members of the community. We have been able to offer our comprehensive resource and referral services for 38 years, due in large part to your support of our mission, which is to help families chart a course toward a more financially secure future. 

Being a Women Aware donor means you are helping to transform the emotional and economic future of someone in our community – not just a quick fix.  We provide a supportive environment that helps people address the underlying causes of poverty and helps guide them out of a pattern of living from crisis to crisis, to a more financially secure and stable future. 

Project Intent/Purpose: To help individuals/families develop a comprehensive transportation plan and provide eligible households assistance to access a well-developed network of area agencies and organizations designed to address issues of: employment, medical care, emergency assistance, education, and other critical resources.

Project Goals:

A)   To improve the quality of life for financially disadvantaged individuals/families, by facilitating  access to critical, supportive resources.

 

B)   To create and implement a comprehensive transportation plan, which includes the combination of two or more types of transportation, including: a bus pass, gas card (for personal vehicle or carpooling), and rides from extended family/friends/neighbors/ volunteers.

 

C)   To assist participants in obtaining/securing government photo identification (State IDs or Tribal Enrollment IDs), certified Birth Certificates/Certificates of Marriage, bus passes, gas cards, and credit reports.
