Many of you know Judi Woods as a helpful insurance expert that assists her clients in finding the insurance that best fits their needs, but did you know that Judi is also very involved in meeting community needs?
Eleven years ago Judi became keenly aware of an important need in our community and founded a unique evidence-based mentoring, and academic achievement program for young women in and "aging out" of the foster system, called Footsteps to the Future (FTTF). She decided that, with the help of compassionate, positive women she would do her best to make sure that this population of young women is not forgotten and instead given opportunities to thrive in our community and become educated, job ready, and self-sufficient, contributing members of our community.
If you are looking for positive ways to get involved in the community and make a difference... Footsteps to the Future may be it! Check out the FTTF website to learn more.
