Do you own a can opener?
Among people on the move in the greater Seattle area, 78% do not own a can opener. In the middle of a pandemic, can you imagine turning to your pantry for food only to find that you have no way of accessing what is inside?
On the surface, the solution may seem as easy as collecting and delivering can openers. Unfortunately, the problem goes much deeper. Beyond this established need, families need a symbolic "can opener" of friendship and emotional support to overcome individual barriers and access the power of self-reliance.
Lacking the means to overcome such barriers and access what they need, many simply do not know where to turn. So, what can they do if help is available but simply beyond their grasp?
Undaunted Women provides a personal, one on one approach to advocacy to help individuals open cans and doors alike. With your shared interest in improving the lives of women and their families, Undaunted Women will continue making an invaluable impact.
Mission in Action
Our mission is to help individuals overcome social and economic barriers to self-reliance through connections, advocacy, and inspiration. We put our mission into action by providing one-on-one volunteer advocates to help women identify and overcome their personal barriers to self-reliance.
Through this individualized, one-on-one approach, we have successfully fostered relationships with people on the move.
Examples of how we offer hope to the women we serve include assisting with: furthering their education, gaining meaningful employment, starting their own businesses, and enrolling them in ESL classes. Our micro-approach allows us to go down rabbit holes for each woman and break down the unique barriers she faces enabling her to reach her personal growth goals.
