WHF Foundation Volunteer Opportunities
The WHF Foundation is pleased to announce its continuing Financial Empowerment program partnership with residents of Calvary Women's Services, one of the Foundation's six non-profit partners. Three 8-week sessions are scheduled for 2016 as follows:
Session 1 - March 1 to April 19
Session 2 - July 5 to August 23
Session 3 - September 6 to October 25
Taught by WHF volunteers who have trained on the FDIC Money Smart curriculum, the Financial Empowerment program helps the women gain the knowledge they need to make wise financial decisions when they leave Calvary to live independently. Each weekly session lasts one hour at Calvary, located just minutes past the Nationals baseball stadium and convenient to the Anacostia Metro station. This year, Sessions 1 and 3 volunteers will use the highly successful Money Smart curriculum. Session 2 volunteers will use a pilot curriculum. More information will follow as the pilot course is finalized.
For questions and to volunteer, please call the WHF Foundation at 703-683-4742 or WHF Foundation President Mary Martha Fortney at 703-507-4088 (email at firstname.lastname@example.org).
