Women United
Who We Are & What We Do

Who Are We: Women United (WU) is based on the recognition of women as a powerful philanthropic force. This dedicated group is grounded in the idea that addressing the most critical needs of our local foster youth community will enrich the entire community as a whole and creates a better life for us all. Members stand up, unite and take action on issues that hit closest to home by advocating, educating, giving and volunteering.

Our Women United membership is dedicated to ensuring local foster youth are prepared for a successful transition to independence and ready for success in life.
What does that mean now? While many youth in foster care are working to overcome challenges, the COVID pandemic has added even more barriers to their success. How can we be part of the solution?

Aging Out of Foster Care in a Pandemic
COVID-19 Update from Women United

Many of us have been sheltering at home with our families, and many young people left foster care without permanent connections – don’t have traditional homes and families to stand with them during this unprecedented time.

The challenges of foster youth aging out of the system are compounded in the middle of a pandemic.

Across California, the coronavirus pandemic has only made foster youth situations worse. 

Children and youth in foster care have already survived a lifetime of change and uncertainty. For these children and teenagers, changes like what they are encountering right now during COVID-19 can trigger traumatic memories or symptoms.
