Each year, the Women’s Fair features local non-profit organizations that provide much-needed services to women, children and families in our community. Through the event, we feature each non-profit with an exhibitor space and the opportunity to speak on stage about their organization. In addition to raising awareness, we also raise funds for these organizations through the prize packages that are raffled off at the Women’s Fair. 100% of the money raised is donated equally to each organization. We look for non-profits that help women and families succeed in their everyday lives.
In the past, we have featured organizations like the YWCA of Missoula, the Jadyn Fred Foundation, Partnership for Children, Mountain Home, the Girls Way, Tamarack Grief Resource Center, the Playground Project, Missoula Aging Services, Zootown Arts Community Center, CASA of Missoula, the Flagship Program, Living Arts of Montana, Silver Lining Foundation, Hellgate Rollergirls, Austen Martell Memorial Mud Bog and Tough Trucks, MCT, inc., Girls on Shred and Buckets of Love.
In order to support their efforts, the Women’s Fair helps to increase awareness of these non-profits so you will learn more and get involved. The work that these special organizations do would not be possible without the generous support of supporters and donors right here in our local community.
Here’s a bit about our 2022 Featured Non-profit Organizations!
Opportunity Resources, Inc.
For over 60 years, Opportunity Resources, Inc. (ORI) has been providing individualized care for hundreds of Western Montana’s adults living with disabilities. They are dedicated to the goal of helping their clients achieve independence in housing, employment and in as many other areas of their daily lives as possible. ORI works diligently to provide all of the support services required to make independence an achievable goal for the individuals they serve.
ORI’s “Artists of Opportunity” program encourages clients to express themselves through art, much of which is displayed at Opportunity Resources headquarters and throughout Missoula. The “Choices” program provides educational, recreational and social activities for clients with developmental disabilities. This program teaches those individuals how to productively use downtime through exercise class, computer activities, arts and crafts, cooking class, and more.
Opportunity Resources relies on donors and volunteers to help create opportunity for those they serve. Visit them at the 2022 Missoula Women’s Fair to learn more about their programs and the ways you can how you can become involved in supporting their important mission.
Montana Women Vote
Montana Women Vote (MWV) is committed to increasing women’s participation in all aspects of democracy. Founded in 2000, the organization works statewide to engage low-income women in the democratic process as informed voters, policy advocates, and community leaders.MWV works with low-income women, women in the LGBTQ community, Native women, and their allies to fight for health care access, reproductive rights, economic justice, and violence prevention through leadership development, voter engagement, and policy advocacy.
To MWV, voter engagement is more than just voting. It means getting women registered and giving them tools to head into the voting booth with confidence. From information about ballot initiatives to the Montana Women Vote voter guide outlining where candidates stand on the issues that impact women and families, MWV works to show how decisions by elected officials directly affect women’s lives.
Visit with them at the 2022 Missoula Women’s Fair to find out more about the important work that they do, and how you can get involved in their mission of developing leaders and increasing voter engagement.
