Wonderful group of people, will help you in any possible way they can! Love y'all keep up the wonderful work!
The DAWG organization has helped to learn about the WV Houding development Fund and I in turn has helped assist three people to buy a home, who was turned down for conventional loans due to limited income that is atpoverty level. It was fun and very informative going to and sssisting in homeowners workshops. Evelyn Dortch spent some of her personal time answering questions and being able to refer me to others who wo uld help me make some dreams come true. I highly recommend this non profit to do volunteer work.
This nonprofit has helped so many folks who are marginalized to empower each others' voices. They work tirelessly to organize communities so that they can empower themselves to overcome the stigmas of poverty and recognize their own worth as human beings. Wherever they go, telling their stories, they gain support from others with stories to tell, and foster recognition that we are all suffering for lack of human rights and dignity in this country. The have been successful at overcoming sterotypes which disempower groups that are traditionally marginalized, and have lead with love, inspiring others to do the same. They have grown from a local organization to one that is recognized by human rights allies nationwide. They have provided support and solidarity to those struggling with oppression from the systems in place which do not respond to their clients with respect or dignity. DAWG has changed and continues to change that situation. I cannot speak highly enough of the work they have done wich spans all age groups, ethnicities and educational levels. They foster a unification of welfare parents and teens that would not otherwise be possible, and which continues striving to change the social injustices of the systems within which we all live.
I love this organization. I have been working with this organization since I was I was a child. My mother is one of the founders so this group is close to my heart. They have done so much good for our state and nationally. DAWG is for poor people by poor people. DAWG was incorporated in 2002 but the women who formed DAWG had been organizing before incorporation.
