Arizona Women’s Education & Employment, Inc. (now part of A New Leaf, after a separate merger funded by Lodestar) and Fresh Start Women’s Foundation both work to empower women to achieve financial stability by providing education and employment services. As like-missioned entities, the two organizations wished to explore the possibility of merging. The Lodestar Foundation provided a grant to hire a consultant to lead AWEE and Fresh Start through the collaboration exploration process; the organizations ultimately decided not to merge.
