The Women’s Fund and Smart Party

It’s hard to be a woman making a living and raising a family here in Birmingham where 41% of single mothers live below the poverty line, the median income for female-headed households is more than $20,000 below the living wage, and a lack of affordable childcare, housing, and education leaves many low-income women limited to part-time jobs and without enough resources to provide for their families.

Thank goodness for organizations like The Women’s Fund which last year helped 2,083 women and their children improve their economic security. Through community support, The Women’s Fund helps women move beyond poverty through collaboration, grantmaking, and advocacy. One of their newest programs, Collaboration Institute connects low-income single mothers with in-demand jobs while providing critical economic supports like childcare and education.

Next week they are hosting the Smart Party honoring many of the incredible women here in town making a change for the better in our community’s health. One hundred percent of the proceeds from Smart Party ticket sales and donations will benefit the programs of The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham. Here’s a look at the honorees!
