Women's Issues are Community Issues
Austin Community Foundation believes that ensuring the economic security of women and children is essential to closing the opportunity gap in Central Texas, and we know we cannot do this without addressing the racial wealth and health divide faced by women of color. In our latest research report, we explore indicators that point to the well-being of women in Central Texas through the building blocks of economic security: child care, education, housing and women’s health.
