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.

Read to Succeed
This project encourages the importance of literacy and creates access to literature in low-income students and their parents as these students are less likely to read at grade level. Women United will focus on My Little Free Libraries and promoting materials on the importance of literacy.
Women United will not have monthly meetings, instead members are expected to support and participate in Women United social change projects.
General Member commitments in addition to attending quarterly Advisory Meetings to set the course for Women United.
