The Women's Resource of Greater Houston is a visionary nonprofit striving to help young girls, women, and their families be financially smarter, healthier and empowered. TWR offers maximum leverage of anyone's investment because of their model of service - extensive use of volunteers to deliver financial education and coaching under the coordination and leadership of a lean and effective staff. TWR also offers a great community service by investing in important research on the topics of financial education, women's giving patterns and related issues. LISC is proud to partner with TWR on the first two Financial Opportunity Centers in Houston - collaborative efforts working to help families leave poverty and achieve financial empowerment through education and coordinated services. The Women's Resource IS a Great Nonprofit!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the use of their research and strategic thinking as we determined how to effectively partner to bring financial education to specific communities.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their "can do" attitudes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

positive, professional and sharp.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of many, many women and their families....to a positive tipping point for Houston. It would also be able to collect and analyze greater amounts and better data for more precise strategy development and program planning.

I work for a non-profit to provide social/emotional services to at-risk youth in the high school setting. Every semester for the last three years, the Womens Resource has provided a skilled and well liked facilitator to conduct the Project LEAD group for girls on my campus. They love it! They meet weekly for 10 sessions of financial literacy and leadership skills. The sessions are interactive, educational and fun for the girls. Each semester is wrapped up with a panel presentation of alums who share their higher education and career experiences.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen the girls gain self-confidence and esteem.
