Women United

Leading the charge. Inspiring the change.

In September 2017, the Cape and Islands United Way launched an affinity group called Women United.

 

Our mission is to encourage, enlighten and engage women, children and families in our community. Through our Strong from the Start platform, we focus on the needs of children ages zero to three.

Fundraising proceeds support our Community Baby Shower held each spring, Reach out and Read, and educational grants that encourage career development  and economic self sufficiency for women.
