When a woman comes to us and says, "I'd love to go back to school, but don't know how I'd manage the transportation, child care, or books," we can now say, "You are in luck. The Women's Giving Circle has made a way."

Thanks to support from the Women's Giving Circle, we are training new volunteer tutors and providing educational materials for more women who are learning to read or speak English.

The generous funding from the Women’s Giving Circle allows Heartly House to provide medical accompaniment and advocacy to victims of sexual assault. Without that support, victims of this brutal crime would have to undergo the intrusive forensic examination without the support of an advocate.

Heartly House, Inc. Inga James, President and Executive Director

As a result of your grant, Mentees gain access to a wide variety of successful women in our community; they have the opportunity to learn about real life topics both with and from mentors and presenters. WGC is an amazing example of the power of a community of women!
