I have been involved with AWEE since 1986. It is a well-run organization that serves unemployed and under-employed women in Arizona. The agency has consistently used its resources wisely. At various times in the last 25 years, I have volunteered as a bookkeeper, been paid as a Contract Accountant and served on the Board of Directors. I have worked with several Executive Directors and Marie Sullivan is outstanding in her leadership and professionalism.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing the changes made to individual lives and knowing AWEE used every dollar provided to help its clients.

The annual AWEE luncheon is called Faces of Success. Real AWEE clients appear and tell their story about how AWEE helped them turn their lives around. There was the story of the ex-offender, drug addict who had beaten her addiction, found a responsible job, and had reconnected with her daughter. There was the story of the young man who found a job so that he could work to support his younger siblings. All of these people explained that they could not have done it without help and support from AWEE, which included everything from corrective dental work, to resume writing, to a clothing closet, to case management and support. Each story is more moving than the last.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I leave these luncheons moved by the personal stories of the clients, and the obstacles that they have overcome with the help of AWEE and its staff. My own troubles or struggles always seem insignificant by comparison.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The way they are able to work with such diverse clients to help each one overcome what seem like insurmountable personal obstacles, to achieve success and personal dignity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, caring, hardworking and committed to their mission

In the 1990's, my business partner and I prepared accounting and payroll records for AWEE. My business partner was honored as an "Angel" by AWEE. I have always supported AWEE in every way I can. I have watched them grow and fulfill a need in the community of helping displaced workers assimilate into the workforce. Their services are needed more than ever in this present economic climate.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a supporter category. I would be willing to mentor their students.
