Where WWAC is headed
Each year, we aim to grow and continue reaching more women in need. In 2019, we anticipate a total of 30 Scholars in our program, which will be another record year.
bridging the cliff effect
The Cliff Effect is the single greatest barrier to self-sufficiency for low-income families. It is the equivalent of taking one step forward and two steps back. Eligibility for government support is based on income with benefits being removed as income increases. The lack of gradual release often leads to a situation where parents are working harder but are more financially burdened. WWAC is focused on bridging this income and support gap by providing a safety net while women achieve true self-sufficiency.
