Women Empowering Women 

The Women’s Leadership Council members collectively stand-up, unite and take action on issues that hit closest to home by giving, volunteering and mentoring. When a network of caring, powerful women get together to drive change and inspire others, anything is possible.

Currently the WLC is 57 women strong and together raised $84,956 in 2013. Click Here to read more about how this support is changing lives.
