Women’s Business Network (WBN) is proud to announce Angela’s Angels of Latrobe as our 2020-2021 Service Project. Located in Latrobe, Angela’s Angels is headed by Angela Rose O’Brien of the Laurel Highlands Chapter, and serves underprivileged teen girls and women by providing them with new and previously loved prom dresses and special occasion wear at no cost.
They have recently expanded their focus to work with other nonprofit organizations that service girls and women in need such as:
- Adelphoi Village providing complementary outfits to abused, neglected and at-risk youth as a reward and incentive for exemplary behavior.
- The Westmoreland County Regional Services Youth Center to build self-esteem to dependent youth by providing appropriate clothing for court appearances and appointments.
- The Welcome Home Shelter is an emergency shelter for homeless families and single women.
- The Blackburn Center advocates for the rights of all individuals to live free from domestic and sexual violence and other forms of violence by eliminating the root causes of this violence and providing for the well-being and safety of survivors/victims.
