Our New Now

We are starting a social enterprise!

In 2021, YWCA Hartford Region was one of six non profits chosen by Hartford Foundation for Public Giving to participate in a Social Enterprise Accelerator.

What is a Social Enterprise?

A social Enterprise is a business which seeks to maximize profits while maximizing benefits to society. The profits are principally used to fund social programs.

Why A Social Enterprise?

  • We know that businesses and individuals want to use their purchasing power for social impact and community reinvestment
  • COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted women in the workforce
  • Women are reimagining their career paths through entrepreneurial endeavors
  • A need for skill development for women
  • Online Flower Shops are a growing market
