Participants in our Money Management Series...
The Women United project was set in motion when a group of women recognized the leadership potential of women in Story County and the opportunity to make a difference in their communities. Focus groups were formed and one theme permeated discussions - helping people achieve self-sufficiency. After much brainstorming, a steering committee identified financial literacy as the key component needed to build self-sufficiency. It is through the leadership of the Women United members, volunteers and staff that our mission of helping women achieve self-sufficiency and confidence through financial education is realized.
