Mission: Women Identity Purpose (WIP) is dedicated to connecting and advancing women to improve their families' quality of life through increased wealth, health and education.
Results: We build relationships with our community partners in order to target more women. In the recent past, some of the things we have done are: *Given away money toward educational expenses; *Raised funds for Christmas gifts cards for struggling mothers *Faciliated a back-to-school supply drive for an underfunded public school. *Provided workshop presenters for resume writing, interviewing skills, healthy living, etc... *Our largest Grady McKnight financial award has been $1600 to an individual.
