Making a Difference

Economically self-sufficient women will lead the economic growth of our community. This is true of small businesses and women, who provide 47% of the current workforce. Making a difference in the lives of women and their families continues to be our mission after over 31 years, and we do this with the help of individuals, corporations and foundations.


Volunteers have always been an important element of our mission and goals as an organization. Our ability to effectively serve our clients through their life-changing journey has touched the lives of hundreds of volunteers. Learn about volunteer opportunities.


The Women’s Employment Network (WEN) is a Kansas City-based 501(c)3 serving the Kansas City Metro area. Every dollar has a lasting impact and ensures WEN can continue to deliver life-changing services.  Through corporate, foundation and individual contributions, we collectively impact the lives of women and their families. Thanks to the generosity of our community, this year alone WEN has provided services to over 700 women who are now on their way to a brighter future.
