Here’s the Story:
Crittenton Women’s Union (CWU) is proud to field our first-ever Tufts10K for Women team!
With a fund-raising goal of $5,000 and a commitment to raising awareness, Team CWU will powerfully contribute to our mission to help low-income women and their families build better futures for themselves and their families. In FY2014, CWU programs served more than 1,400 people through our housing, alternative education, career development, and family support programs.
• Nearly 95% of CWU program participants have incomes below the poverty line
• 90% of CWU program participants have only a GED or high school diploma or less.
CWU takes a unique approach, working with each person long-term as she acquires the skills necessary to create an economically secure life. Our independent research advances continuous program improvements and innovation that helps our participants succeed. So far in 2014
• Nearly 100% of our career development graduates got jobs or enrolled in an education program
• Program participants in a CWU pilot program increased their average monthly income by 14% within two years
