GRANTEE SPOTLIGHT

 

Asia's Story

Asia is a mother of three boys who left an abusive marriage and was motivated to find financial stability for herself and her children. Because she had twins as a teenager, Asia felt lost when it came to financial planning, getting her GED, and starting a career; however, she knew she wanted to be a good role model for her children. After losing her job because of child care challenges, she applied to Denver Human Services (DHS), who referred her to the Center for Work Employment and Education (CWEE).

With the help of WFCO and our grantee partner, CWEE, Asia is on the way to providing the kind of life she dreams of for herself and her sons.

The 2022 Legislative Session

As a nonpartisan organization, we supported more than a dozen bills during the 2022 legislative session that will help do the following: 

  • Make work work for women
  • Increase women’s access to basic needs
  • Ensure that women statewide have access to the full range of reproductive health information, care, and justice.

It was an incredibly successful session in which all of the bills we and our partners supported passed and all of the bills we opposed failed. See the complete list of bills we took positions on and the impact they will have on Colorado women and families.
