Our Mission

Committed to positively impacting the lives of women & children living in poverty in Lewis County by encouraging self-sufficiency and empowerment.

About Us

As Women United, our mission is to positively impact the lives of women and children living in poverty in Lewis County by encouraging self-sufficiency and empowerment.  Women United gathers local women who seek to understand the issues facing our community and then roll up their sleeves to help.  We operate as an affinity group of United Way of Lewis County and as such, we work within its mission to lift 30% of Lewis County families out of poverty by 2030.

Women United affinity groups exist across the nation with over 75,000 women involved in their local communities serving as an extension of their United Way organizations.  We are all committed to the success of our community, where we live, work and raise our families.  From Youth United to Retire United and Women United, affinity groups gather passionate and dedicated volunteers who form strong professional networks, working in the community accomplishing goals to create positive change in targeted segments of the community.

What We're Working On

Our dedicated steering committee is busy meeting every two weeks to finalize our projects and programs for 2020.  As a brand new afinity group, they are busy building a strong foundation of policies and guidelines that will guide us as we begin our first year of work in 2020!
