WAHEO’s primary services
Projects provided fiscal sponsorship and/or co-developed by WAHEO:
The name WAHEO comes from a saying that I taught my daughters: We always help each other no matter what happens in life–no matter the highs or the lows, we always help each other.
I want WAHEO to be an organization that serves communities in ways reminiscent to Kintsugi, which means to join together with gold. "It treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise."
I want to make sure that resources and funding reach the clients they are meant to serve in impactful ways–with the goal of connecting them to networks of high-quality sources with the same vision and goal of helping and empowering clients to achieve self-sufficiency.
When organizations strategize on how to complement each other and build upon each other’s strength through their own strength, the sky is the limit. Through sponsoring the initiatives of other women in the community who are also driven to make a difference, WAHEO has had the privilege of facilitating the receipt of funding from agencies such as Together Toward Health, Travis Credit Union, CAL OES, Valero Benefit for the Children Foundation, First5 Solano, County of Solano, Solano Community Foundation, the EPA, No Kid Hungry, and Innovative Health Solutions. We are truly stronger together.
At this year's California Association of Nonprofits Cal NOTY (California Nonprofits of the Year) event, Assembly Member Lori D. Wilson presented Food is Free Solano and WAHEO with the 2022 District 11 Nonprofit of the Year Award.
