In July 2002, a new non-profit organization, Women Empowered opened its doors. As an education and support organization (with 501 (c) (3) status) its goal is to address the needs of a large population of women and girls living on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
Feeling overwhelmed by the stress in their lives, they often experience feelings of anxiety, fear, frustration, helplessness and thus find themselves unable to affect the measure of control necessary to insure a quality of life they perceive to be acceptable.
WE offers free education and support in the form of instruction in these basic life skill areas:
-balancing a checkbook
-planning a family budget
