A significant number of senior women use large portions of their income just to meet basic needs, leaving little for health care, food and other basic necessities.

The founders of the Fund for Homeless Women coordinate The Friends of Homeless Women. This volunteer group increases awareness through strategic outreach, community conversations and relationships building.
We have about eight Wednesday morning programs a year where we explore what is happening in our community. We arrange for speakers to present information to the community. We encourage the audience to make announcements of what is happening in the community. We also meet with local groups to discuss homelessness and to listen to ideas and plans that groups may have to improve the community. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like us to speak to your group.
