Fields Corner-based non-profit gets $100k boost from Cummings grant
July 04, 2019 / Daniel Sheehan
Mujeres Unidas Avanzando (MUA) was one of several Dorchester-based nonprofits to receive a $100,000 grant from the Cummings Foundation earlier this month as part of a “100k for 100” initiative that saw the foundation invest $10 million in local nonprofit organizations. The Fields Corner organization, formerly known as “Mujeres Unidas en Acción,” provides low income Latina women and their families the tools and resources needed to empower themselves and join the workforce. As MUA enters its 40th year of work, co-director Johannah Malone reflected on the organization’s humble roots and how it has grown in recent decades.
