Women United


Women United was formed to inspire, educate, and engage women to become actively involved in leadership, philanthropy, volunteerism, and advocacy in support of their local United Way.  Women United is a group of community-minded women who provide the support it takes to build successful lives through United Way’s building blocks of Health, Education, and Basic Needs.

Women United consists of four quarterly breakfasts a year, with the cost of a breakfast included in the membership fee.  Everyone is welcome to attend a breakfast for a cost of $20, so please come and learn about us and enjoy breakfast!  Each year Women United members rally around a cause in our community and form committees to enact change.  Our projects have included rallying around the Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter’s need for a new facility, all while learning about intimate partner violence in northern Minnesota; supporting the Bemidji Community Food Shelf’s need for a mobile food pantry, which has been serving Blackduck and Kelliher monthly for over 16 months; and most recently, creating Shuttles for Shelters, a transportation initiative for Village of Hope, our local family homeless shelter.
