Introduction

  • Washoe County has various non- profit and community organizations available for families; however, there are not enough services to help women. By proposing this center, we hope to help further educate women and encourage personal development.
  • Models for our idea:
    • Jewell McFarland Lewis-Fresh Start Women’s Resource Center (http://www.wehelpwomen.com/)
    • Washoe County Leadership Academy
slide4

Fundraising

  • Here are some ideas for raising money:
    • Raise County Taxes! (Just kidding)
    • Create joint fundraising events with other organizations
    • Accept donations from the community and private businesses
    • Write grants/ proposals and submit to State and Federal Agencies
slide5

Guidelines

  • Our program guidelines:
    • Select 5 to 10 women per session
    • Have 4 sessions ranging from 2 ½ to 4 hours
    • Provide information about community resources and agencies (The idea is not to take business away from other entities but create awareness)
    • Collect feedback from participants and community
    • Being easily accessible for people with limited transportation
    • Acting as a “missing puzzle piece” for services not rendered in the community
    • Provide alternative ideas to traditional ways of thinking

    • Churches

Washoe County Participation

  • To make this project a success, several departments under Washoe County are needed:
    • Management Services
      • Since part of their department provides grants, this would a great opportunity to obtain funding
    • Social Services
      • Volunteers could provide childcare
      • Some of the volunteers as well as families in the system could be participants in sessions
    • Family Judicial Court
      • Listening to the judges, I think this goes along with their goal to help re-habilitate families and individuals in the system
slide17

Additional Ideas

  • Other Ideas consist of:
    • Providing daycare
    • Provide transportation
    • Having various series targeting issues directed by former participants
    • Having former attendees coordinate future sessions
    • Creating partnerships with various members of the community to dedicate their services and time
