Crittenton Women’s Union

After the historic merger of the Women’s Union and Crittenton, Inc., Crittenton Women’s Union (CWU) became Boston’s leading nonprofit innovator in helping low-income women and their families become economically self-sufficient. Its unique approach combined direct service programs, independent research, and public advocacy. Its groundbreaking research and practices was used as a blueprint for local, state, and national non-profits and government institutions serving low-income and homeless individuals and families. On May 6, 2016, Economic Independence Day, CWU announced our future as Economic Mobility Pathways, EMPath for short.
