Our Impact On Weld County
Since 2009, Weld County based Women2Women (W2W) has provided immediate one-time financial assistance to more than 1568 local women through a referral and application system in cooperation with other 501(c)(3) organizations.
W2W’s goal is to provide a “hand up” that helps women who have unexpected expenses and to date, over $788,461 has been given to assist Weld County women and their families.
What makes Women2Women so unique in filling this critical community need are volunteer board members who make it happen and the speed at which funding is allocated (usually within 48 hours) to women in need. W2W pays assistance directly to local vendors and service providers resulting in a positive local economic impact.
