- About Us
Women United is an international initiative in more than 165 communities across six countries. Donors volunteer their time to empower others and accomplish more together. Since 2002, Women United has invested $1.5 billion in local solutions for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.
This newly formed women's group focuses on building a stronger community that fights for the health, education and financial stability of every community member.
The group is 70 members strong and growing. Members are diverse and dedicated to making an impact in the community through service.
"I am inspired by this recent effort to energize our community members to use their personal passions,
best ideas and unique strengths for the mission of building stronger communities."

Women United Porter County is open to women interested in sharing their talents and passion. For more information about how to get involved, contact Kasie Tenbarge at Kasandra@unitedwaypc.org or 219.464.3583, ext. 103.
Women United Porter County has teamed up with Recovery Connection to provide life skills classes and social events for women in recovery. These weekly classes include financial stability, resume review, and even crafting lessons. Each member of Women United is asked to host a class every other month at the Recovery Connection office.
The goal of the program is to offer the support that women in recovery need to develop new hobbies and skills, while letting them know that they are not alone.
Since September 2018, Women United members have served more than 26 women through Recovery Connection.
