November -December 2021
“I am utterly grateful to the Women’s Resource Center who not only assisted me during a difficult time, but also has always been there for the entire community in La Plata County. It’s nice to know we are not alone. Thank you so much for all you do!” ~ Olivia
Annual Campaign Goal = $40,000
Help women rise above challenges, pursue education, engage in professional development and achieve their dreams.
While women are more educated and more employed than ever before, they continue to face disparities in income and opportunity in the workplace. Women also typically bear the responsibilities of unpaid labor including household chores, child care, and even the care of elderly family members. In single-parent homes across the country, women still make up 83% of heads of household. With a widespread lack of workplace policies such as paid family and medical leave, paid sick days, workplace flexibility and affordable childcare, women were disproportionately impacted by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting the disparities women face to this day.
Donating to our Annual Campaign will allow women to access local resources to fulfill basic familial needs, engage in educational and entrepreneurial pursuits, and discover skills and tools to advance their careers. Our pursuit to advocate, educate and empower each individual improves the overall health of our community and the Four-Corners region.
We need $40,000 to end the year 2021 in the black!
