Investing in women to build strong communities for all.
Two-thirds of Englewood families are headed by single mothers.
Nearly half of these mothers struggle to make ends meet.
For our region to thrive, we can't leave anyone behind.
When women and girls in Englewood are safe, healthy and have access to opportunity, Chicago - and all of us - thrive.
Job training and education are important pieces of the puzzle, but to complete the picture, women need wraparound support.
Englewood Women's Initiative provides the additional support to ensure women can succeed: affordable housing, family support, mentorship, financial coaching and credit clean-up.
When women rise, they bring families and whole communities with them.
