Until recently, women were mostly home during the day, either living with or close to other women. When women entered the workforce and many times became the sole provider for the family, they had to forgo the connection to these other women due to lack of time and energy. This means that along with losing the companionships, they lost the emotional support that went along with it. In a majority of the cases, with no male presence in the home, women are left to deal with the burden of insufficient income, housing issues, and the stresses of daily life on their own.
In recognizing the role women play in society, we understand that by serving the women, we in turn are serving the entire community. In helping to improve the quality of life for these women, there is a positive affect on their families, churches, schools, children and community.
