Empowering Marginalized Women & Girls Inc.
EMWG is an organization that was started by women of color, for women of color. Our Goal is to empower women living in Black and Brown communities, prevent homelessness, and improve women's overall wellbeing by organizing and developing health and wellness educational programs and activities.
We stop at nothing to help underserved women including low-income women, transgender women, women diagnosed with mental health disorders, active or recovering substance abuse users and homeless women! We provide education and supportive services to women living in shelters, senior centers and more. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted our community, our families, and the women that we serve. However, we are bouncing back by reinventing ourselves as an online program!
The current challenge that we face is, we are women of color helping other women of color thus, we belong to a historically oppressed population. As a result, we are often overlooked for founding opportunities and disregarded by political officials. Nevertheless, we will not allow that to stop us from achieving our mission, but we cannot do it without support!
Please help us stay afloat during these difficult times by donating! We are a tax-exempt organization, so your donation is tax deductible. Your donation will allow us to continue to provide low-income with services by enabling us to purchase the best technical equipment and provide women with tablets so that they can participate in online programing. Furthermore, we can provide the women who attend our groups with incentives such as, certificates of completion. Finally, we will use the founding to expand our program by offering services such as, COVID recovery groups. We would like to thank you in advance for your support!
