A LITTLE HISTORY

The first 100 Women Who Care chapter was founded in 2006 by Karen Dunigan in Jackson, MI.  Since
then, other chapters have been launched throughout the U.S. and in other countries as well.
The Naperville chapter--founded by Palma Aikins--began in February, 2009 with 29 members.  The
goal was to reach a membership of 100, which was reached and surpassed in the spring
of 2013. Today the membership numbers over 140, more than four times what it was at that first meeting in 2009.
