Target demographics: Low income women and girls

Direct beneficiaries per year: 5,827 class participants and 194 Project LEAD students.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Teach a financial education class at one of our partner agencies.

Geographic areas served: 48 zip codes in Harris and Ft. Bend Counties

Programs: The Women's Resource annually teaches free personal finance classes to 6,000 low income and financially illiterate Houstonians in 38 zip codes. Using the acclaimed FDIC Money Smart and Department of Labor Wi$e Up curricula, we help those outside the financial mainstream enhance their money skills and build financial knowledge and confidence.

Now in its ninth year, Project LEAD remains the only research based program for at risk ninth and tenth grade girls that proactively counters the high dropout rate, helps girls avoid financial pitfalls, and teaches life skills. LEAD reaches 200 girls each year and is held onsite at public and charter schools in the Fall and Spring semesters.

Mission:
The Women’s Resource of Greater Houston provides free financial education and research so that women and girls have the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions and improve their lives.
Results:
Since we were founded in 1990, more than 30,000 Houstonians have completed a class.
