Greater Bedford Womenade

Click here to edit subtitle

An individual seeking assistance from GBW should be an established client of one of the various social service organizations serving the greater Bedford community listed below. Our validators within those organizations will then connect with GBW directly should they determine an individual’s need is best met by GBW rather than by their own support or other funding sources.

GBW validators are professionals working with social service organizations and the like that exist to support individuals whose needs match those of the organization.
