Mission

Many single mothers who are working fail to qualify for many government benefit programs yet still fall incredibly short of providing adequately for their children. Whether it is a temporary situation, a displaced homemaker now on her own with her children, a domestic violence situation, or whatever situaition has brought them to our doorstep, we aim to help ANY single mother who may have fallen upon hard times and or have contintually just been "denied" other economic, educational or other types of assistance because they are working and thus do not qualify for assistance, but really do! We hope to offer these "forgotten" single mothers assistance in many forms.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Fresh Start Thriftique

Open and operate a thrift/consignment store that will serve the community on many different fronts. 
 
Start-up costs are what are needed right now, however, once those costs are covered, the Thriftique will be a self containing entity that will also be one of the income producing vehicles assist WOW to provide more services to more women everywhere! 
 
1.  Will be a viable self-sustaining means to save time, money and efforts on fundraising as this store will turn a profit that will then in turn allow WOW to continue the current programs as well as develop new programs without constantly needing to fundraise to do so.  Some fundraising will still be necessary, however, the store's profit will aid tremendously in utilizing the talents and resouces of our volunteers to more effectively be able to deliver our services.
2.  Provide a place where single mothers and women in need can come and find items they need. If these women can not afford items, they can offer their time in return for them and thus by also learn the value and benefit of volunteering.
3.  The Thriftique can and will be utilized as an "Evolving Classroom" that can be used to teach women skills as basic as how to do inventory or as extensive as to learning all aspects involved in running a small business. 
4.  Provide a place where the community can shop and save money for their families.
5.  Provide a place that can be utilized as a place to recycle items no longer needed by other families, receive a tax donation credit for their troubles and lesson the load on Mother Earth!
6. Provide local jobs that are severely needed in the community.
