United Housing Receives Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis Grant

Families across the Mid-South will be able to receive the services they need thanks to a new round of grants totaling more than $500,000 from The Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis (WFGM).

The foundation has awarded $6 million in grants over the past 18 years to more than 100 non-profit and educational organizations, providing support to nearly 16,000 women and children through education, training, empowerment and hope.

This is the second year in a row that United Housing has been selected as one of the local organizations to receive a portion of the total grant pool. A grant of $10,000 will go directly toward our Homebuyer Education program, the heart of our organization. To learn more about the foundation and see the list of all 2014-2015 grantees, click here.
