WOW is an awesome organization. The inter-generational mission and vision is inspiring and motivating. Through out the decades, WOW's programs and policy recommendations have been cutting edge, setting the bar for other allied organizations in the field of family and elder economic security. The workplace culture of the organization encourages and supports growth and innovation. I highly recommend WOW. It is as a great place to work and thrive. Those working with and for WOW know they are a part of something special.

The programs developed and furthered by WOW that have been extremely important to low income women in general and to low income women in the District of Columbia in particular, in my opinion, are those related to economic self sufficiency standards, the programs WOW developed for teenage girls so that they could get a sense of the realities of having a baby, the programs WOW developed for low income women to get training in nontraditional jobs, and WOW's impressive advocacy for the needs of low income women to Congress and to the White House. In my experience, WOW is one of the small group of nonprofits working for women where you find yourself wondering how so few people can do so much that is good for so many

For a number of years, I had the pleasure of working closely with the staff and Executive Director of WOW. We partnered to reach out to and engage women in the local community on issues impacting women and girls. We hosted numerous meeting and community events, educated women and girls on how to advocate, and advocated for them at the city council and with government agencies. WOW continues to lead this important work. The organization does a fantastic job of identifying needs, coming up with a range of creative and effective solutions, and implementing them.

The Elder Economic Security Initiative being led by WOW has helped Michigan put together an Elder Economic Security Index for Michigan and Detroit. The Index helps me help clients with informed budgeting decisions if they are contemplating retirement. More frequently, it helps clients understand that it isn't their fault that they are finding it challenging to make ends meet using Social Security as their sole source of income, but that certain governmental supports (such as subsidized senior housing) can help bridge that gap between income and expenses.
