Thank You, Crossroads Fund

CF-logo-color

We are delighted to announce that Crossroads Fund has awarded us a grant of $4,000 in this year’s Seed Fund program.

This generous funding will be dedicated to general operating costs—enabling us to get many more books in the hands of the women we serve—as well as to special projects to create awareness and inspire action around issues related to our work.

It’s an honor to be one of the many groups that Crossroads Fund supports in working for racial, social and economic justice across a wide range of issues and communities.
