Are you looking for a place to regroup, reinvigorate and become re-inspired ? Want to share ideas in a safe and nurturing environment?
We created the National Women's Collaborative (NWC) to tap into the underutilized skills and ideas of women in our field and in return give them the resources and support they need to get a job, make a transition, renew their purpose or simply get back in the mix of professional life.
Applications being accepted at email@example.com. Priority will be given to women who have been displaced due to COVID-19. Restrictions apply.
Stockings from Karen is a non-profit organization that gives the gift of self-esteem to teen foster girls through annual delivery of Christmas stockings filled with toiletries. Often when a child arrives in foster care, all they have are the clothes on their backs. Our stockings are stuffed with staples teen girls need like deodorant, toothbrush/ toothpaste, lotion and self esteem boosters like makeup and hair accessories. We work with the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) programs from Baltimore, MD to Winchester, VA to deliver the stockings.
