Join United Way California Capital Region’s Women United action group for our three-day virtual event during Women’s History Month to raise awareness of the needs of local foster youth and to celebrate the local women who are making a difference for foster youth in the community. The virtual celebration will take place March 23-25 beginning at 10am and will include live online presentations, videos, events and prize drawings each day. On March 23, it will hold an evening online networking event that includes breakout sessions, prizes and more.
United Way’s Women United action group recognizes women as a powerful philanthropic force. A network of more than 250 women, it leverages members’ passions, ideas, expertise and resources to ensure foster youth are prepared for a successful transition to independence and ready for success in life.
For nearly 100 years, United Way California Capital Region has brought local people together to make community change happen. Today, the nonprofit is bringing people together across Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties for its Square One Project, a 20-year promise to significantly increase the number of students in our region who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. United Way believes ending poverty starts in school and is working to ensure kids meet important milestones and their families receive support and resources.
