The Women's Housing and Economic Development Corporation (WHEDCo) works with families in the Bronx who struggle with the multiple challenges presented by poverty and who, like all of us, aspire to a healthy and financially stable future. We believe that given the right support at the right moment, all families can flourish. WHEDCo replicates the attributes found in prosperous communities-safe, healthy homes; highly skilled professional childcare and enhanced extra-curricular activities; physicians, learning experts and therapists; opportunities to develop small businesses--and offer them to low-income families throughout the Bronx. Through our innovative, inter-connected and high-quality solutions, WHEDCo is working to make the Bronx a more beautiful, more equitable, and more economically vibrant place to live and a raise a family.

For 25 Years the Women's Initiative has been providing high-potential, low-income women with the training, funding and ongoing support to start their own businesses and become financially self sufficient. The Women’s Initiative expanded into New York City in 2012. Through an intensive 20 session program — in English or Spanish — women are enabled to start, or expand their business. Women assess their businesses and entrepreneurial readiness through the Initiative’s comprehensive business management and personal development training. Women's Initiative provides ongoing support — through SuccessLink graduates at all levels of business who are connected with influential women in business, seminars and coaching. Scholarships are available for very low-income women to ensure that no one is turned away for lack of financial resources. Women's Initiative administers a relationship based loan fund, with loans ranging from $2,500 to $50,000, and links women with asset building opportunities, including matched savings accounts called Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) where participants' have the potential to double their savings for capital investments.
