Lake Worth West Resident Planning Group’s mission is to promote family unity and community safety by providing wellness, cultural and education programs for culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse adults, pregnant women, parents, and children that reside in and around Lake Worth West. The $25,000 grant from Invest in Others will be used to provide a series of culturally competent classes in financial literacy and job readiness skills for 50 low-income women of color seeking to improve economic stability. In-person or virtual classes, led by a bi-lingual Project Coordinator and community presenters, will be held at the LWW Community Center.
