Women United

Igniting the power of women, impacting our local community.

Women United

The Women United Commitment

Focused on generational poverty, Women United fights for self sufficiency, health, safety, and education in Will County through a community by community approach.

Our Social Change Projects

Women United transforms communities by addressing issues related to generational poverty. Our projects are organized and planned by Women United members to address identified community needs. These social change projects are not typical “one and done” volunteer events, but have long-term goals and objectives to make an impact.
