Mothers are often the healers, champions, protectors and quiet heroes who can change the course of history.
Mothers’ Voices Georgia Chapter (MV-GA) founded in 1996 was part of a national grassroots organization focused on mobilizing mothers to become advocates for HIV/STD prevention, treatment, testing and counseling as well as champions of life-skills to help women make informed choices about their economic security and access to quality health care.
Factors such as poverty, gender, homelessness, substance abuse and family violence place many women at risk of poor health outcomes and economic insecurities.
In 1997, Mothers’ Voices Georgia in collaboration with the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) created a signature financial education program entitled, Smart Women and Money.
This award winning program provides financial empowerment workshops that educate at-risk women about money and how it can move them toward fiscal stability. Smart Women and Money has reached more than 100,000 women in the U.S. and globally since its inception.
