Then, how military veterans can become franchise owners of a growing, national firm, that specializes in the removal and hauling of “junk”!

The company is called “J-Dog Junk Removal & Hauling” – and it is the ONLY franchise in America EXCLUSIVELY offered to American military veterans, and military families.

We’ll talk with Jerry Flanagan – CEO & Founder of “J-Dog” – and Andrew Weins – a veteran of the United States Army Reserves, from Wisconsin – who is now a proud owner of a “J-Dog Junk Removal” franchise.

Finally, the Women and Girls Foundation will invest more than one million dollars a year – for the next, three years – to improve the economic condition being faced by single women, with children – who are trying to provide financial security for their families, and escape from poverty. The initiative, is called – “Femisphere” – and it’s receiving funding assistance, from the Buhl Foundation, the Henry L. Hillman Foundation, and the Opportunity Fund.

A report, last year, from the Women and Girls Foundation and Allegheny County’s Department of Human Service, showed that 77-percent of households in the Pittsburgh area, headed by single women, with children — are living in poverty.

Heather Arnet – CEO of the Women and Girls Foundation – and Rochelle Jackson – Director of the “Femisphere” initiative – will share the goals of this project, and its progress.
