In December 2016, The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham announced its plans to invest in innovative programs to move the Greater Birmingham women and their children beyond poverty.

Jessie’s Place of the Jimmie Hale Mission was fortunate to be a part of this recent initiative.  Since being founded in 1996, this investment is the largest amount in a single grant cycle from the organization.

“Thanks to generous community support, more women and their children will have the tools they need to build better lives,” said Jeanne Jackson, President and CEO.

Homeless women and children will now have a better chance at long-term success.  The grant will support and make available job skills training, affordable housing, child care and career coaches.
