The GFWC Woman's
Club of Stuart
Under the leadership of GFWC and GFWC Florida, we have six community service programs that contribute to the mission of our organization. These programs include Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach, and Public Issues.
Each committee has a chairperson and works hard to meet its purpose as outlined by GFWC. Every member of our Club is required to serve on one Community Service Committee each year. Descriptions of each Community Service Program follow.
Arts- Create and contribute to arts education and activities in our communities. Activities are designed to inspire clubwomen to engage their creative side. Encourage programs and projects for the arts including dance, music, theater, all forms of self-expression. Some of the programs being considered for Arts this year include:

Conservation: Enhance our environment for healthier living. Bring GFWC to the forefront by way of conservation programs. The Conservation program is designed for members to gain an appreciation for our environment. Through preservation, maintenance and restoration of our natural resources, it strives to educate members about the importance of beautifying our communities, preserving, maintaining, and restoring natural resources, and stimulating citizen action to address these concerns.

Home Life - The purpose of this committee is to identify needs and educate members and the community by drawing attention to the available resources for strengthening Individuals, families and communities. We may work with partner organizations that improve the lives of those in need. We will implement projects that prove the lives of those in need. We will implement projects that increase awareness of prevention, research and treatment of diseases, promote a healthy lifestyle, address the issues of hunger, inadequate housing and homelessness, and promote financial responsibility.

International Outreach: The International Outreach Committee is designed to enable members to become better world citizens through advocacy, education, and action, which will effect change in and for our communities locally, nationally, and Internationally
The International Committee Programs for this year focus on human trafficking and helping to restore victims. The committee will do this by raising cultural awareness of this global tragedy, fundraising activities to help restore victims, and advocating for basic human needs and promoting self-sufficiency. This may include supporting legislation to mandate education and penalize the perpetrators.
