Women United, an effort by the United Way of Tarrant County which allocates funds to organizations that support women and girls, named its 2022 grant recipients at the Investing in Impact Luncheon on May 12.
The Women’s Center of Tarrant County received a $40,000 Impact Grant and Rivertree Academy was awarded $20,000 as a finalist for the grant.
The Women’s Center helps men, women and children in our community face sexual abuse, violence, poverty and mental health issues. The organization offers rape crisis and victim services, violence prevention and education, employment solutions and general counseling.
Rivertree Academy is an independent school located in the Lake Como neighborhood for under-resourced students. It works to break the cycle of poverty by educating students from Como to learn well, love well, work well and lead well.
“The Women’s Center is an outstanding organization working to improve people’s lives here in Tarrant County,” said United Way of Tarrant County President and CEO Leah King. “The support and care they provide to those in need is invaluable, and we are so pleased to present them with the Impact Grant.”
