I have been serving as a Board Member for the Women's Resource of Houston since 2010 and it has been the most empowering and impactful organization that I have ever been involved with. We teach over 4000 women and girls each year, and help them to become strong, self sufficient women. Our organization changes not only our student's lives, but their entire families. I believe that financial literary is a very important tool to help end poverty, and I am proud to be part of an organization that is changing lives in a permanent and meaningful way.

TWR is on the front lines of the raging economic crisis in our country, teaching women, men and families the fundamental skills of financial literacy in an unbiased manner. Approximately 90% of women will have sole responsibility for their finances at some point in their lives, and are disportionately responsible for raising young children who also need to be taught these skills.

In addition, TWR has teamed with local universities and high schools for a mentoring project with at risk high school girls to teach them the fundamentals of personal leadership, saving and goal setting and discipline.

TWR is rapidly expanding its services, is fueled by an army of dedicated volunteers and exercises incredible financial discipline (you must practice what you preach, after all).

For everyone who has shaken their head, wondering how we got into our current financial crisis, I urge you to support the honest and energetic work of TWR.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Recruit even more volunteers, and more service agency collaborations, all of which require additional financial support.

I had the opportunity to teach a financial literacy class. The class was held for individuals who were struggling to pay their electricity bill. If they attended the class, they would qualify for a voucher for a months payment.
