WHERE THERE IS NEED, WOMEN LEAD THE WAY

Women United is a dynamic group of more than 1,400 local women committed to helping our neighbors in need and stabilizing families facing poverty. Women United members give at least $1,000 annually and take action through volunteering, advocacy, networking and educational events. Women who give $10,000 or more annually are recognized as members of the Women United–Tocqueville Society and receive additional benefits.
