The Alton Chapter of Women Empowering Women (WEW) is moving their monthly meetings to the first Wednesday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The goal of the group is to offer support and practical information that empowers, encourages, and inspires professional women. Laura Mattson organizer of WEW said she felt the move to SSP reflected the members commitment to helping other women by supporting organizations such as SSP that provide valuable assistance and services to women in the region.

At each lunch session, attendees will have the opportunity to network, swap business and professional leads and needs, while also expanding their professional and personal acumen through presentations being provided by area and regional women with subject expertise to share. Membership is free and open to all business women in the Riverbend area.

There is no cost to attend the meeting. Lunch will be available for you to purchase at the SSP Grill.







Pay Now Illinois is a coalition of 64 human and social service agencies serving Illinois' most vulnerable populations. The members of the coalition provide a broad range of essential services including healthcare, housing for the homeless, sexual abuse counseling, and programs for at-risk youth. As a group, we are seeking payment of more than $100 million from the state for more than 300 days of work performed under signed contracts. 

As of May 4, 2016, the coalition is suing the Governor and six department heads, asking the Court to enforce our contracts with the State so we are paid immediately and in full. We have upheld our end of a legal agreement; the State must uphold theirs.

Our actions are unprecedented because the situation is dire. The lack of funds is undermining our ability to continue to serve people in need, and threatening the viability of some agencies. For more information, please visit
