A program that helps single mothers in Door County with career training is getting a big financial boost. Lakeshore CAP's Cradle to Career program is getting $10,000 from the 100+ Women Who Care of Northern Door County. That comes through the organization's quarterly fundraising which provides money to non-profits nominated by members. The Cradle to Career program helps single moms and some two-parent families with basic needs, set budgetary and financial goals, and obtain GED's, secondary education or job training. The program operates on a combination of grants, United Way contributions, and other donations. Coordinator Kris Miller says the funds from 100+ Women Who Care will be a big help for the 12 clients currently in the program.
In addition to helping the Cradle to Career program, 100+ Women Who Care also gave $4,500 each to Operation Not Alone, which aid active duty military personnel, and the Peninsula Players Theatre.
