Women United (Formerly Power of Women)
As an integral part of United Way, Women United® fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.
We Ignite Change
It’s in our nature to protect fervently and fight fiercely for the people and causes we care about. We have an innate ability to communicate and get to the underlying issue. And we have an undeniable determination to do something about it.
Our Purpose Locally
Our purpose in Douglas and Pope Counties is to mobilize women, by connecting women who care with causes that matter. Our mission is to help local children become educated, empowered and elevated. We do this by focusing on childhood literacy. In 2016 we:
- Fully funded the Traveling Tree House
- Built 6 Little Libraries and have committed to filling them with children's books
- Raised over $10,000 through memberships and events
- Held our annual Wine and Women fundraising event and fall brunch
