The mission of New Economics for Women is to create economic and educational opportunities for single parents, families and disinvested communities as a pathway for dreams to come true.
Dear Community Partners,
For most children, December holds many wonderful holidays filled with food, family, love and presents. It is a time where children build their first magical moments that create happy memories they will remember for many years, and it will build the foundation for them to continue the cycle of giving. Sadly for many other children, this holiday season will remain a time of struggle and worry. Many poverty-stricken families will struggle to keep their children safe and warm, and will not be able to provide them with presents or a holiday celebration.
We need your help to provide these children and families with an opportunity to create magical memories and relieve some worry this holiday season!
New Economics for Women’s (NEW) FamilySource Centers (FSC) will be hosting our Holiday with a Heart
event on December 7th, 2013 at our Van Nuys location and on December 14, 2013 at our Canoga Park location. The event will offer music, fun activities, resources, free haircuts or styles, family pictures, a toy give-away and more. With your help, we can make this event a memorable one. READ MORE...

From Dream to Reality
Each individual might have different circumstances leading their migration to the United States, but most immigrants have the same ambition; to make better lives for themselves and families. That was certainly the case for Ester Alvarado and Rosalina Santos, both single mothers from El Salvador. These two amazing women decided that they would pursue the American Dream of homeownership. Ester worked two jobs setting a savings goal to one day have the means to buy a home. Her mother, Rosalina, worked diligently for years, saving and following a very strict budget. Over the years their hard efforts created a nice savings for down payment and closing costs.
They began the home search process several years later, but they became very discouraged once they began to submit offers that were declined by sellers since they did not have greater than 20% down. They were heartbroken and quickly became disillusioned. Their dreams and hard work seem to have shattered right in front of their eyes. Slowly, they began to believe that they would not be able to attain the American Dream.... read more
