Financial Education and Microenterprise Development for Women and Families

The YWCA Malden Financial Education and Microenterprise Development Initiative was created to help participants achieve economic stability. Youth and adults benefit from financial education, workshops, materials and on-line resources, as well as personalized financial support services for families struggling from escalating debt and lack of access to credit. In addition, the YWCA Malden provides a range of business skill-building services for emerging female entrepreneurs so they can generate increased income and strengthen microenterprise development. Through this program clients are empowered as they learn new skills, increase their access to financial resources and then take action that will change their lives. They learn how to maximize financial decisions. As they learn the basics of financial management, they are encouraged to set short-term and long term financial goals, repair credit, and to explore career options that will lead to financial stability.

TASK (Teen Advocates Sharing Knowledge) provides at-risk Malden teens with leadership training and opportunities to empower, inform and involve their peers (and adults) in the vital issues that effect all teens. Topics include teen pregnancy, alcohol, substance abuse issues and violence prevention. In addition, TASK has played an important role in identifying opportunities to affect systemic change, educating decision makers on policy options, and facilitating ordinance implementation. This policy work has had a profound impact on local health officials, and is consistent with the trend experienced by many health departments and organization. Building on past successes, TASK will now shift thier strategic directions upstream to more high-impact and sustainable approaches.

YWCA Malden has addressed the need for affordable housing through its Women's Residency Program. For close to twenty years our Residency Program has provided a safe, affordable and supportive place for women to call home. Residents have easy access to public transportation, employment opportunities, educational programs, and social service agencies. Each resident enjoys a private studio unit, as well as congregate kitchen and living space. The affordable rent is calculated based on 30% of income. In an effort to better serve very low wage earners, and to address an increase in homelessness, the YWCA has partnered with the Malden Housing Authority through a Voucher Based Project for six of our 20 of the YWCA housing units.

Population(s) Served

The essential goal of the YWCA Encoreplus Program is to increase screening among medically underserved women to reduce breast cancer mortality and morbidity using a multifaceted approach to: (1) educate women about the importance of breast health screening; (2) build relationships with other community organizations and individuals; and (3) develop and implement a highly effective referral services to the priority populations. Given its diverse, expert and multilingual leadership team; established community relationships; and history of carefully crafted evidence-based programming, Encoreplus has demonstrated its ability to reach women with the greatest need, a challenging task many other programs fail to achieve. These essential strategies ensure that women receive a continuum of care so breast cancer screening is supported as a life-long and life-saving habit.
