the project

W3Q will be helping women realize their dreams of being business owners! Our Target demographic is women returning citizens and veterans. I believe is that if we can help them realize their dreams we can reduce the recidivism rate for our returning citizens and also mental illness and suicide which is prominent among veterans. With the money raised we will find that dream from concept to completion / doors open and follow their progress over the next 2 years and help out where possible!

why we're doing it

W3Q reason for starting this program is because we want to empower the women in our community! We want them to feel acknowledged, important, loved, and supported in their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs! We chose to work with the underserved in the community and by way of returning citizens and veterans! We know that most people may not be given a chance because of their background and some have traumas that they must get by. W3 care and we are here to help them realize their dreams!
