A Woman’s Work is a unique funding source for women in the St. Vrain Valley who need financial support for immediate needs that cannot be met by other sources. Our assistance pays for a wide variety of needs including child care, housing, transportation, medical needs and more. In return, we ask only that the recipient pays the kindness forward.
It all started with a question asked by a small group of women in 2003: What happens to normally self-sufficient women in our community when they are met with financial crisis and there is no help available from family and friends? The answer, they found, was disappointing – there was little support available to many women who found themselves in that situation. This group of women took matters into their own hands and set a goal of raising $10,000 by finding 100 women in 100 days who would donate $100 each. That goal was achieved in 13 days and A Woman’s Work was created. In mid-2007, after operating as a fund of the Longmont Community Foundation, A Woman’s Work received its own 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
Serving the community is a team effort. As AWW moves forward, the Board of Directors and staff will continue to work with other non-profits, schools and churches to serve women in need.
