  Our Mission...
EMPOWERING the women of Charlotte   
  County in the areas of education, financial stability, and wellness.

  2022 Platform: Empowering Mothers to Raise Healthy Children

What exactly does this mean...

This is done through assisting the Kids Thrive Circle of Parents peer support group, women who are raising children exposed to early childhood trauma. By surrounding themselves with like-minded women, these mothers are setting themselves and their children up for success through the ups and downs of life's journey. To read more about Kids Thrive, click here.

Women United is an affinity group of United Way of Charlotte County. We are committed to using our TIME AND TALENTS to change lives for the better! We all have unique, individual talents and skill sets and we can share them. Ask yourself, "What skills, strengths, and knowledge do I have that could possibly help another woman in Charlotte County better her living situation?"

Women United brings altruistic women together to transform local lives in Charlotte County. There are no regular meetings, however, members participate on committees to help with quarterly activities throughout the year. These activities and events help each of us grow into a better woman, focused on serving our community.
