What is WORD?

Women's Opportunity and Resource Development, Inc. (WORD) is a feminist, award-winning and nationally recognized non-profit organization founded in Missoula, MT in September 1986. We work to offer women the resources they need to transform their lives and communities and, in so doing, fulfill their potential.

With a twenty year track record in designing and implementing locally responsive, innovative and effective programming, we work to strengthen the economic self-sufficiency and stability of low income women and families in Missoula and beyond, further their active participation in the shaping of their lives, conditions and communities, and call for the social recognition and valuing of the contribution of women to society.

Through our five programs we offer support, education and training to empower women and their families to move from a place of need to a place of independence, participation and choice. Our programs promote women’s access to stable housing, adequate income, personal/career development, family/school involvement and the creation of policies for social change.
