Work in the Community

The years of the pandemic have 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 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…
  • January 2022 we heard Building Social and Economic Independence through Transitional Housing and Support Services, speaker from Bayside Housing and Services. Details click here…
  • February 2022 OLYCAP presented Unsheltered in Jefferson County speaker from Olympic Community Action Programs
  • March 2022 we heard Affordable Housing in Jefferson County about Habitat for Humanity of East Jefferson County
  • Members of our AAUW are part of the community documenting local housing efforts. See links to the films below.
