Single Women's Advocacy Center for Education
Adolescent pregnancy cost North Carolina $1,039,390,739 in fiscal year 2001-2002. That includes the cost of WIC, Medicaid, food stamps and TANF. Childless, young women are seemingly at disadvantage when assistance is needed. This “forgotten population” in our society is often denied assistance because they don’t have dependents.
SWACE was created to provide services to these ladies. We believe that education empowers individuals and encourages them reach total “selfcess”. Our target age for service is 17-35 years old . However, we will offer our resources to all women.
