Reaching out to our community
The Women’s Business Connection (WBC) is very active in the community and in 1996 adopted their first community outreach partner, the YWCA of Chester County. Since that time WBC has been involved and supported several organizations. Whether it was through a clothing drive for the Career Wardrobe, fundraising efforts, or physical labor provided to assist the first ever Habitat for Humanity Women Build in Chester County, WBC members have reached out to our partners delivering the support they need.
The 2022-2023 Community Outreach Partner
A Path To Hope empowers individuals to seek treatment by offering guidance in navigating mental health systems and support locating resources in and around Chester County.
Their mission is to offer support and guidance to jump start the process for parents who have a child who is suffering. In the past several years, the occurrence of suicide in our community has been staggering; our children are facing challenges that we cannot comprehend. They are reminded of their insecurities 24/7 by social media. I am not suggesting that these tragedies could have been prevented, I am simply offering to share what I have learned (the good, the bad, and the ugly).
