WHO WE ARE & OUR FOCUS
Women United members (WU) are community leaders who are committed to empowering and inspiring women to lead community-wide change that ends poverty. Membership is comprised of caring citizens who contribute $1,000 or more annually to United Way of Greater Greensboro.
Members elevate and support United Way’s efforts to end local poverty by helping youth and women create and stay on pathways to employment. This focus is woven into all events, volunteer opportunities, and advocacy efforts.

In addition to mentoring female youth and women, members support career building opportunities like resume writing, mock interviews, and dressing for success at Family Success Centers and across multiple partner agencies. Members also coordinate drives for feminine hygiene products, toiletries which food stamps do not cover, and professional clothing attire.
