Women United is a diverse, vibrant community, bound together by a powerful sense of belonging — to each other, to our mission, and to the communities we call home.
Mission: To inspire, educate, and engage women more deeply as positive change agents in support of the advancement of single mothers and their children in Greater Portland.
We are a united force for the advancement of single mothers and their children in Greater Portland. Through philanthropy, volunteerism, and advocacy, we are leading critical work that will positively influence single mothers’ ability to meet basic needs, educate children, and achieve optimal health and well-being.
Membership in Women United is based upon an annual contribution:
