Women United Porter County aims to provide a support network for women in recovery by providing life skills classes and social events. Members commit to hosting classes and/or donating funds to support the program. Bunco Bash, their annual fundraiser, raises more than $9,000 to support the effort. Established in 2018 by United Way of Porter County the program has grown to more than 100 members. The group is led by three volunteers. To learn more, visit unitedwaypc.org/Women-United.

“As a long-time United Way supporter, I have seen the importance of United Way’s work to support our entire community,” said Cindy Sausman, Chair of Women United Porter County. “Being involved in Women United’s Monday class program is so rewarding. The ladies allow us to play such an amazing role in their lives as they rebuild. I’m so proud of them.”

“I am inspired by this recent effort to energize our community members to use their personal passions, best ideas and unique strengths for the mission of building stronger communities,” said Carrie Higgins, Women United vice chair.

“We’re showing the women at Recovery Connection that they are not alone on their journey,” said Kathy Ricke, Women United events chair. “We can all give more and it takes a very little amount of our time. It just takes someone to step up.”
