Throughout this unprecedented time, The Centre for Women has continued to provide essential programs and services to women and their families across Tampa Bay.
We have helped people to find meaningful work, businesses to be resilient and entrepreneurs to find more than $1 Million in access to capital.
As mental health issues emerged, our caring therapists transitioned to tele-health consultations to help people wrestling with fear, anxiety, grief, divorce, and depression. Thirty-eight percent of those we serve make less than $14,000 each year. They cannot afford even the deductibles for mental wellness care.
We also understood that the pandemic took a toll on isolated seniors so we made hundreds of reassurance calls and launched the Graceful Gift Basket campaign to brighten their holidays.
Last year, 92% of the funding we received went directly to program support. And, once again, this year, The Centre for Women was named as one of the best nonprofits in the area.
Your support is vital to help us continue our work. The needs, particularly to help women find gainful employment and deal with the post-effects of the pandemic, have stretched our resources.
You can make more than an annual gift, you can make a real difference!
