WomenUnited was created to unite 1,000 women who collectively commit to empowering women within Hudson County and supporting them in becoming self-sufficient and engaged members of their community. 

Individually, we can each take a stand and raise our voice. But when we unite, we can really make our influence felt and our voices heard. Just imagine the roar of 1,000 voices and the might of $100,000.

When you become a part of WomenUnited for $100.00, you contribute to an organization that, for over 112 years has championed women and supported them through crisis to self-sufficiency.
