What We Do
A Woman's Work provides support for women in the St. Vrain Valley whose immediate financial needs cannot be met by other sources. We ask only that recipients perform an act of kindness in return. How we help.
Would You Like To Help?
Volunteers are the heart of our organization. We could not help as many local women without our dedicated team of volunteers. Whether it's helping in the office, planning an event, or serving on a committee, it's our volunteers that make us thrive.

A Woman's Work is a unique funding source for women in the St. Vrain Valley who need financial support for immediate needs that cannot be met by other sources.
A Woman's Work assistance pays for a wide variety of needs including child care, housing, transportation, medical needs and more. All women who receive help from A Woman's Work must live or work in the St. Vrain Valley for at least 90 days. In return, A Woman's Work asks only that the recipient pays the kindness forward.
In 2006, the AWW Advisory Board made a commitment that 10% of all funds received would go into an endowment fund unless otherwise specified by the donor. The fund is currently invested with the Longmont Community Foundation and ensures that assistance will be available to local women in need for many years to come.
In the fall of 2003, a group of local women committed their time and money to raise the necessary dollars to make A Woman's Work a reality. Together, they created strategies for raising and sustaining funds, and developed a means for distributing funds through local non-profits, schools and churches.
The group's initial goal was to raise $10,000. The plan was to get 100 women to donate $100 each, in 100 days. That goal was achieved in 13 days! In fact, the group's efforts were met with resounding support from the community. As a result, at the end of its fourth month of existence, nearly 200 local women had contributed over $20,000 to A Woman's Work. During that same period of time, over $8000 was distributed to women in need.
