The Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation is presenting a free community forum: Restorative Justice: A New Approach to Juvenile Justice at noon on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at the Redding Library Community Room. This will be an informative discussion with experts in the probationary, judicial and youth peer court areas speaking on a new approach.

Reservation are requested and space is limited. You are encouraged to bring your lunch.

“The Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation was founded in 2008 to address the persistent challenges facing women and their families in the Redding area. The North State area has fewer women college graduates, more teen pregnancy, and higher unemployment and poverty levels than California as a whole. The Women’s Fund supports finding solutions for women struggling to break generational cycles of poverty and underachievement.”

“Since 2010, The Women’s Fund has awarded $215,000 in grants to programs and projects that create a better future for women and their families in the Redding area. The Women’s Fund raises funds primarily through annual memberships at the $200 and $1,000 levels. A portion of membership monies are invested each year to build an endowment to sustain grant-making. Up to $50,000 is expected to be awarded during the next grant cycle, which will focus on one of two areas:

— Advancing economic opportunities. This includes helping women with financial solvency, entrepreneurship, training in non-traditional careers, financial literacy, mentoring and professional networking.

— Fostering self-sufficiency. This covers supporting women with housing, child care, transportation, diploma completion, mental health support, dental care, personal finance and life skills.”
