Working together to raise the grade for women

Release Date: 
04/25/2018

This data dive brings me back to my grade angst. This time it wasn’t math, but the D+ assigned to Florida via the results of the 2016 Status of Women in Florida by County: Poverty and Opportunity Report, and a new Economic Status of Women in Florida fact sheet released in March. We use these reports to help shape our luncheon discussion.

The report and fact sheet were released by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research in partnership with the Florida Women’s Funding Alliance of which the SWFLCF is a member along with many other Women’s Foundations in the region and across the state.

Innovative Program Improves Kids' Literacy and Shelter Animals' Adoptability

The program admits school-age children, who attend a short information session, a shelter tour and a free book, courtesy of The Jim Moran Foundation. They're taught how to read an animal's body language in a stressful shelter setting. Some animals get very lonely being in a shelter environment and they enjoy the company. To encourage interaction, the young volunteers offer treats to animals when they approach the front of the kennel, positively reinforcing their behavior. Once the animals associate humans with happy things, they're more likely to interact with potential adopters and find their furever home.
