Handbags for HOPE is an annual fundraiser that benefits UWWC’s Fund for Quality Early Education. Our partner in this work is Windham Child Care Association, who serves as the fiscal agent and administrator of the funds. Through the Fund, early educators can apply for grants to assist them in professional development, such as paying for college courses, conferences and workshops, or mentoring. They can also access funds for program enrichment, including special events, materials, and activities.
