WOMEN’S WAY gives Immediate Response Action Fund Grant

WOMEN’S WAY is thrilled to give a grant award to A Woman’s Place to install brand new security features across all of their facilities, improving safety and peace of mind for AWP clients and staff! From receiving the completed grant application to approving and disbursing the award, WOMEN’S WAY was able to leverage funds from the Immediate Response Action Fund in 10 business days.

From Mae O’Brien, Interim Executive Director: “We’ve been in need of a security overhaul for some time, but when we had multiple police incidents at our facilities within a single month, we knew something had to be done immediately. Women’s Way responded so quickly: within 10 days, we had the funding we needed, and by the day after receiving the grant, new security features were already being installed at all 4 of our facilities. These features make our staff and clients feel safer and make our emergency shelter (and all of our offices) feel like the safe havens they are meant to be.”
