During this WGA Education Event we delved into the crucial topic of fostering safety for women and girls experiencing domestic violence. Representatives from WGA grantees Betty Griffin Center, Hubbard House, Micah’s Place and Quigley House convened as a panel, exploring strategies for creating safe, secure environments and empowering survivors.

2023 Member Forum

A highlight of our recent Member Forum in May was the awarding of grants to the seleced non-profit agencies. Our 2023 grant pool of available funds was $561,600, a tribute to the generosity and commitment of our WGA members!

 

This year, grants were given for “Core Mission Funding,” in one of two areas: workforce development or client basic needs.
