Womens Resource of Greater Houston
March 30, 2011

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.

The Great!

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

Homes throughout Houston -- rich, poor, young and old.

Ways to make it better...

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.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I have taught financial literacy classes to men at the Salvation Army, and mentored girls on career development in Project Lead.
