Teaming up with PACT Recovery Connection
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 who 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 43 women through Recovery Connection.
To support their efforts, Women United hosts a Bunco fundraiser annually in March. Learn more here.
