International Women’s Day at Eccovia

pexels-rdne-stock-project-7491159

At Eccovia, we’re privileged to work with amazing organizations that serve the most vulnerable in their communities, such as those experiencing or at risk of homelessness, refugees, LGBTQ+ youth, and many more. Across these organizations, women serve in every capacity, from decision-makers at the highest level to case workers interacting with and serving clients directly.

Over the course of our years of working together, we’ve had opportunities to sit down with some of these amazing women and talk about their organizations and they work they’re doing. Today, we want to shine the spotlight on them so you can have a chance to see what they have accomplished, for yourself!
