Undaunted Women is a female-founded 501(c)(3) organization.
We began in 2020 when a few friends wanted to offer extra help to
the immigrants and refugees arriving during the unprecedented crises.
We are 100% volunteer-run, and believe in supporting our refugee sisters with low-barrier access to basic donations, connection to inclusive resources, English language support, and friendship.
In 3 years, our grassroot movement has grown and now we have a volunteer staff of over 70 with 5 different teams offering services across King and Pierce counties, as well as online. Come join us!
We support individuals in overcoming social and economic barriers to
self-reliance through connections, advocacy, and inspiration.
