Last year, the Community Fund for Women & Girls awarded nine grants totaling $80,950. After reviewing 2017 grant reports, it was apparent that those grants influenced and improved the development of gender-specific programming across the region. Programs serving girls addressed mental health, self-esteem and wellbeing, leadership development, hands-on job training, exposure to STEM fields and skill-building. Programs serving women focused on providing legal services and guidance to Latina women, financial literacy and coaching, leadership development, supportive health coaching and therapeutic services to those coping with substance abuse issues.
