2017 Calvary Women's Services Volunteer Series
The WHF Foundation is pleased to announce the 2017 schedule for its continuing Financial Empowerment program partnership with residents of Calvary Women's Services, one of the Foundation's six non-profit partners. The three 8-week sessions for 2017 are scheduled as follows:
• March 7 to April 25
• July 4 to August 22
• October 31 to December 19
Taught by WHF volunteers who have trained on or used the Changepurse Strategy 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 on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 to 2:30pm at Calvary, located at 1217 Good Hope Road, SE, Washington --just minutes past the Nationals baseball stadium and convenient to the Anacostia Metro station. Two volunteers will team up and instruct for one week during the 8-week session.
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. Mary Martha can be reached by email at email@example.com
