Women United

Leading the Charge. Inspiring the Change.

What is Women United?

Women United is a dynamic circle of purpose-driven women, passionately committed to making a significant impact through philanthropy and service. Recently, we have intensified our efforts, expanded our recruitment, and deepened our involvement. We are raising our voices louder, rolling up our sleeves more often, and leaving a more profound legacy of change. Women United members believe in the collective power of women and the importance of empowering each other to achieve greater successes together.

Our Mission: The purpose of Women United is to inspire, educate, and encourage women to drive change in our community, focusing on women and children through philanthropy, volunteering, leadership, and membership. Our local Women United chapter was revitalized in 2021, and with new leadership in 2024, we are renewing our efforts with even greater vigor.

Our efforts include:

Empowering women's economic stability

Building the next generation of leaders

Creating meaningful mentorships

Changing the lives of children
