Women in Philanthropy Members Celebrate Another Successful Year
Annual WIP Members Celebration


United Way’s Women in Philanthropy is a group of local women dedicated to ensuring foster youth throughout our community are prepared for and successful in their futures. This month, Women in Philanthropy members celebrated the program’s accomplishments while recognizing new and current members at their annual members celebration hosted at the home of Lorrie Wilson, co-chair of the women’s group.

Sheila Boxley, president and CEO of the Child Abuse Prevention Center (CAPC) and a Women in Philanthropy leadership member, spoke about the struggles local foster youth face as they emancipate from the system. She was joined by Torsten, an AmeriCorps member at CAPC who works with teens in the United Way funded IDA matched savings program, and a former foster youth himself.
