Women of Woodlawn, Inc. (WOW) is a New York not for profit organization founded by neighborhood women seeking to make a difference in their community. WOW’s mission is to enrich the lives of those living in our community. Examples of our mission include offering free enrichment activities for the community; by partnering with other organizations to support positive outcome for the community and The Bronx; by supporting populations in need; by working with elected officials as a trusted community advocate.
WOW strives to provide resources to educate the public on the cultural and historic foundations that make the neighborhood unique; to enrich the community through cultural and civic minded activities; to facilitate communication among the residents of Woodlawn and McLean Heights; to provide funding and general support to the communities’ schools and other public resources; and to provide support for community building and common understanding amongst the members of the community and surrounding areas.
We encourage females (and those who identify as female) in the Woodlawn area to join as members.Annual dues are $20 and go a long way towards helping our organization support the Woodlawn community and beyond.
