May 2020: growth[period] is proud to support the Washington Area Women's Foundation Stand Together Fund. The Stand Together Fund was created as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Early data illustrates that women and girls are bearing the brunt of this crisis, from shouldering the majority of caregiving to being among the hardest hit by job loss. The Stand Together Fund will support: (1) Critical services for women who have experienced violence and abuse, such as expanded hotline capacity and telehealth visits; (2) Financial assistance for the caregiving workforce and organizations supporting them, and (3) Advocacy to ensure that women and girls of color are front and center in recovery discussions.
