What is the Women’s Wealth and Equity Building Initiative?


Phyllis Wheatley Community Center seeks to close the racial wealth gaps for the African American community. This September, we are launching the Women’s Wealth and Equity Building Initiative to specifically respond to single, mother-led families' needs for opportunities to build wealth with expert, culturally appropriate financial education and advice.
