Women United is a powerful, passionate network of women who influence change in our community through focused investment of our time, talent and resources.  This unique driving force leads positive social change by creating standards of achievement. We work together toward common goals to help more families in Central Kentucky succeed and reach self-sufficiency.  The signature initiative of Women United is School Readiness – leading initiatives to improve the quality of childcare, family support, early intervention and equipping parents to make positive choices for their families. 

Join Women United and connect to a group of local women who are dedicated to building a better Bluegrass.
