Soroptimist International of Joplin Helps Fund Women’s Shelter

Through a grant of $3,363.50, Soroptimist International of Joplin assisted in the construction and furnishing of a women’s shelter at Watered Gardens. This new addition nearly doubles the operating space of the mission, with a kitchen, chapel, classroom and Worth-Shop area. Thanks to Soroptimist and other donors, the expansion was completed without any debt.

A dedication and ribbon-cutting will be held on Saturday, November 23 at Watered Gardens to celebrate this project. The schedule is as follows:

9:30 am -Ribbon Cutting

9:30 am-11:00 am Open House

11:00 am—12:00 pm -Dedication Service

Soroptimist International is committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide. The local Joplin club felt that this project was right in line with the mission of the organization.

“I am so excited that Soroptimist International of Joplin has been able to assist Watered Gardens with their building expansion designated as a Women's Shelter Unit”, says club president Jennifer Reeves. “It embodies our club’s mission statement ‘to promote community service, personal growth and achievement, professional development and to improve the status of women’. I truly believe that this will make a difference in women's lives for the better.”
