Grantee Spotlight: Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence

After Hurricane Katrina, the Foundation provided operations funding to help the Center expand its services to women and children and to help it meets its budget challenges due to declining federal and state support as well as lost revenue from local sources affected by the hurricane. The Center’s approach is comprehensive and aimed at ensuring women are emotionally healthy, better caregivers, and prepared to gain a quality job, a home, and financial security.
