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!
I am a Social Worker with a non-profit drop-out prevention program. Through a partnership- The Women's Resource of Greater Houston has provided a Program called Project Lead to provide financial literacy and leadership skills to our young women of high school age.
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.
