Connections for Women

Organization Description: 

Connections for Women is a faith-based 501(c)3 corporation who goals are to encourage, equip and empower women living in the Slate Belt communities of northeastern Pennsylvania. Our vision is to see area women become aware of area services and programs and be supported through intentional healthy relationships.

The Slate Belt area of Pennsylvania is located within the northern tier of Northampton County and covers approximately 120 square miles. It consists of ten communities and two school districts. The area is mostly rural with several small to medium-sized towns.

Our research has shown that many women living in the Slate Belt communities feel disconnected and isolated. Additionally services are far from our communities and those needing assistance must travel to Easton, Bethlehem and often Allentown to access them. According to a Northampton County Children and Youth caseworker, there are many women who live with crisis as the norm and have no where to go to make friends or establish healthy supportive relationships. Connections for Women will address these issues out of their walk-in resource center located in downtown Bangor, a centrally located borough in the Slate Belt. The Center is open on Mondays and Fridays and hosts ongoing educational and social programs in the Gathering Room. A Resource Room is available for use by Center guests. Our plan is to have several computers available to the guests that will allow them to check email and access the internet as well as utilize the office equipment to support them as they reach their goals.
