Learn more about our programs:

Getting Ahead is our comprehensive 11-week workshop offered to women struggling financially and involves a combination of self-examination, economic education and building eleven essential resources to increase overall stability in life.

“For when people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.”

- Martin Luther King Jr.

Today on MLK Day and every day, we are dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, promoting peace, ...justice, freedom and dignity for all.

We meet women where they are for our Getting Ahead program and support them in creating their future stories through making peace with the past, identifying where they want to go and creating a clear plan with action steps to move forward.

All participants leave the class with personal ...economic action plans for success and are eligible to apply for funding to support education, employment or entrepreneurship. Graduates are invited to continue the journey with our Staying Ahead program, which provides long term follow up support to build resources, increase stability and work through challenges along the way.

Midland County begins February 7th.
Saginaw County begins March 8th.
