In our neighborhood, over half of all households are headed by women.


Urban Ventures is equipping these women with tools that build capacity, break barriers, and rewrite futures.


Financial Literacy
Women make most of the day-to-day financial decisions at home. Urban Ventures offers women's-only financial literacy classes that teach them how to build assets and balance budgets. 

Health and Nutrition
When you live in a food desert it's hard to keep fresh produce on the table. Urban Ventures' farms and markets supply accessible and affordable food in neighborhoods where it's hard to find. 

Relationships and Influence
Change is hard. It's even harder when you're alone. Urban Ventures offers a network of wraparound family services that empower not only mothers, but fathers and children as well.
