There is no denying that tough economic and political times have disproportionately impacted the women who we serve, particularly low-income women and women of color and their families. Over the course of the next year or so we are undertaking a strategic planning process that will be a road map for continuing to provide much needed services while ensuring that the solutions and voices of women and girls remain heard locally and nationally.
WE ARE PARTNERING WITH FAIR CHANCE IN 2012-2013 FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING
We are proud to announce that TWC is one of four new organizations selected to join the Fair Chance family of DC-based organizations serving children, youth and families.
The vision and mission of Fair Chance is simple and powerful:
"We believe that every child in the District of Columbia deserves a Fair Chance to succeed, our mission is to strengthen the sustainability of nonprofit organizations and their leaders to transform the lives of children and youth living in poverty."
Every year Fair Chance works with a handful of D.C. nonprofits to build their capacity to serve the community. We are proud to join Family Matters, Crittenton, and Courtney's House. Combined we are committed to fighting human trafficking, strengthening families, providing academic support to at-risk children, and preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS in girls and young women.
Over the next 12 months we will be developing our organizational capacity and will be sharing highlights with you along the way!
