I have personally worked with several different families over the years to help each family to become more self sufficent. We have helped people make the transition from renting to owning their own homes. This orgainzation provides a number of services which include GED Program, Health and Wellness classes, Computer classes and has an oustanding youth Jazz class for studying and playing all types of jazz. This orgainzation does a great job with taking the entire family unit on a educational trips outside of St. Louis arena for example, the families went to the Clinton Library last summer. In the past they have been to president Lincoln's Library in Springfield Illinois, Altanta Georgia(Spellman College, Moorehouse and Clark University), They been to the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee. They been to the stock market just to name a few This orgainzation helps expose families to places they have had a siginficant impact on the history of our country.

I have personally seen women look and ask "why would a group of people want to help me and they do not even know me? The answer is simple this orgainzation knows it can and does make a difference in people's lives one day at a time.

CWAH is a good community asset and has truly grown over the years to tailor it services to the needs of the community, while provided opportunitie in other areas that may not have been available othewise. In addition, we are looking for ways to expand our young people's horizons and opportunities. CWAH have continued to keep their doors open and provide an enrichment program included the Jazz Institute and Cooking Class focused on fighting Diabetes. I have provided referrals for the majority of the services. In addition, I have support community programs such as Annual People Against Poverty Campaign. I have referred clients the the Family Support Center specifically to the boutique of gently used clothes to obtain attire for a job interview; as well as a food pantry who needed food.

Often time its difficult to find organization to open their doors to young people and host events. The CWAH has opened their doosr to enable us to provide services on site such as our Violence Violence, Drug Summit and Abstinence Education Program.

I first learned about this organization when I was interviewing the Executive Director, Ms. Gloria Taylor, as part of my CORO Women in Leadership class. I was so impressed by Ms. Taylor's dedication to the goal of empowering women to succeed--for themselves and their families--that I wanted to get more involved. Ms. Taylor asked me to be on the Board and I was honored to be invited to be a part of such a wonderful group of Board members.

I have been a board member for several years and a volunteer for over 10 and I cannot say enough about this organization. Their hands-on-approach, guided by faith is an inspiration to all involved. Please consider CWAH when you are looking to give, whether monetary or in-kind. No act of kindness, no matter the size is ever wasted.

This wonderful organization is headed by Ms. Gloria Taylor. Ms. Taylor and her staff go the extra mile when garnering resources to keep CWAH up and running. Children receive tutoring, have access to a computer lab and attend field experiences. The building houses a boutique for women seeking to get in the workforce to find proper attire. This organization is also an umbrella for The Advancement of Jazz Study and Performance, in which students are exposed to and taught jazz history and performance which culminates into a recital open to the public. Ms. Taylor is a wonderful human spirit, and her gift of giving needs full recognition. Sponsorship is truly needed to allow CWAH to continue giving back to the community.

I am an architect. I met the founder of this nonprofit in 1988. She is a very caring woman and has the interest of women and children close to her heart. The organization takes two or three families a year and make sure they get all the help they need to get back on their feet. The organization sponsors a jazz institute where young people can learn about jazz music and instruments. The organization has a library and computer lab. But as many organizations of this type, it does not have enough financial support. However, the Founder and CEO Gloria Taylor has managed to keep things afloat since 1988. Because of the work of this nonfprofit one of the young women helped went to college. The organization takes its candidates on educational field trips with the help of a local Church that provided the bus and driver.
