Our Vision & History
CELEBRATING 32 YEARS OF THE WOMEN’S RESOURCE
We help women and girls make choices toward becoming independent, productive and financially stable.
In our programs, women acquire the essential financial knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make sound decisions and improve their lives – for themselves and for generations to come. For 2.8 million Houstonians who are experiencing financial distress, The Women’s Resource trains and coaches women and girls, meeting them where they are. We are inspiring financial change, improving financial health, and overall individual and family wellbeing.
We envision a day when every woman and girl has the KNOWLEDGE and HOPE she needs to reach her financial goals.

Our Yearly Impact
In 1992, we began issuing grants, commissioned annual research on topics of significance to Houston’s women and girls, and launched a series of free financial education classes. A decade later, The Women’s Resource made a strategic decision to cease its grant-making activities and concentrate its resources on education and training programs and building partnerships to further our mission.
