The Missouri Women’s Council is dedicated to offering a variety of services and programs designed to encourage, educate and support Missouri women and I am pleased to announce their newly published Missouri Family Affirming Wages for Missouri. I encourage you to see how the report will assist you and your needs.
The Missouri Family Affirming Wages for Missouri, measures the amount of income needed for a family to meet its basic needs, without public or private assistance. This information, broken down by county, accurately reflects the needs of those who reside in the area and is an invaluable resource for many families across the state.
The Missouri Women's Council works closely with other agencies and community-based organizations to build awareness, educate, promote opportunities for Missouri's women and families. By providing information and resources to enhance the employability and skill development of women and families, women are given the support needed to pursue economic goals and dreams.
