A financial literacy and nutrition education program conducted by Worksite Wellness LA at Leichty Middle School.

Women’s Health & Money @ Work helps women balance their health and financial challenges on and off the job through offering a series of free health and financial educational programs. Prior to COVID-19, programs were offered at job training centers, WorkSource centers, worksites, schools, and community centers. Due to COVID-19, programs are being offered remotely via Zoom. Low to-moderate-income women in Los Angeles County receive financial coaching, enrollment assistance, guidance on accessing health care, and nutrition education. The mission of Women’s Health & Money @ Work (WHMW) is to advance women’s health equity and financial literacy.

Project aims:

  • Focus on the social factors that predict the health status and financial security of low- to moderate-income residents in LA: meaningful and stable work, a living wage income, equity, education, strength of community, and mobility.
  • Provide education and resources to low-wage working women.
  • Conduct life skills training on strategies to improve women’s health and financial status.
  • Evaluate the social impact value to employers and employees of offering programs onsite at workplaces and job training centers.
  • Provide employers a free training benefit to their employees which can potentially improve productivity, morale, retention while reducing absenteeism, accidents, and stress.
