Women do so much to make communities possible. They embody the delicate balance of strength and compassion, fight for their beliefs, and are strong collaborators who know how to get things done. At United Way of Adams County, we recognize and applaud the talents of women. By unleashing their strengths, we can generate a positive force in our community and provide women with some of the most rewarding, challenging and uplifting experiences of their lives.
A Woman’s Purse believes that every woman, regardless of her age, deserves positive understanding, respectful support and equality. The proceeds from the Women’s Purse Auction benefits the Independent Living Program of Adams County Children and Youth Services to support young women and men as they age out of foster care. The goal of Independent Living Program is to help youth overcome the significant challenges facing them as they transition to self-sufficiency. Proceeds also support United Way of Adams County’s Ready to Learn Program.
