Helping Women and their Families ASPIRE to New Heights!
Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia is proud to announce that we will be a partner alongside ForKids, in Women United’s ASPIRE pilot program. Women United is a group of women philanthropists, organized through United Way of South Hampton Roads, whose membership is dedicated to eliminating barriers women and children face to escape poverty and achieve permanent self-sufficiency.
Women United has established funding for the ASPIRE pilot, which will provide intensive case management services to women and their children in an effort to increase financial self-sufficiency as well as improve overall family functioning. By serving women and children, the pilot hopes to provide education and services to empower families to create generational transformation. We are working hard to plan the pilot and will be bringing on other community partners to address the specific needs these families face. The program will be ready to serve our first families by January 2019, and we expect to serve 50 families through the pilot for up to three years.
