Work in the Community

The year of the pandemic has led many of us to stretch our horizons to help others both with our funds and HANDS-ON. Our mission includes advocacy and equity. We look forward to 2021/22 reaching out further into our community to support housing and other needs affecting the equity of women and children.

  • Over the summer of 2021, we participated in building temporary housing.
  • In the fall of 2021, we heard at our branch meeting from Housing Solutions Network.
  • Our annual Woman of Excellence award was presented to Judith Alexander of the Community Build Project. Details click here…
  • Members of our AAUW are part of the community documenting local housing efforts. See links to the films below.
