Giving self-sufficiency to Latino Women
2016 Omaha Gives
Public Campaign Latina Women Go Forward Program
Goal: $10,000.00 from May 3 to May 25, 2016
With Your Donation, MLCDC will foster the empowerment of 300 Latina women who are often relegated to the home. Low income Latino women make up 90 percent of the clients at MLCDC. Since 2009, we have provided ongoing education to 3,060 women in several of our programs. This has created 70 new childcare centers, 156 new businesses and 275 new jobs in the Omaha metro area.
Latina Women Go Forward program helps isolated participants to build friendships, engage in the community, and improve skills and self-sufficiency. Our holistic approach aims to build stronger families, healthier communities, and foster respect for our planet. Latina women develop companies in the following areas: sewing, cleaning services, landscaping, making jewelry, arts and crafts, construction contracting, recycling, food processes, and beauty salon licensing.
