Women Identity Purpose (WIP) is one of the best non-profits around for women. The founder, Cynthia Jones, has an amazing heart for serving single mothers. After attending a WIP event, I strongly believe that women will continue to be empowered through education with this organization for years to come..

I started off as an attendee and really enjoyed the event. I have seen the fruits of this great organization. People connecting on so many levels.
As an accomplished author, I was so moved that I donated book sales to WIP, because I am so sold out to this concept.
The organization is not about bunch of programs, it's about meeting the needs of individuals and the community.

I have attended and worked some events with WIP and their President Cynthia Jones. This organization has a heart for women and helping them to reach their full God given potential. Every event or activity is geared toward encouraging and supporting them and reaching their mind, body and spirit.

Find a way to recruit more help.

I was introduced to Women Identity Purpose through its founder and president and learned to love the mission and vision for this charitable women's organization. The beauty of this organization is that it serves an overlooked population--the working poor single parent who is doing all they know to do to provide the best life possible for her family. WIP is doing a stellar job in making a difference in this population through its programs and services. They are to be commended for their hard work and dedicated service.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do more marketing and PR for this organization to bring awareness to the services they provide.

I received a scholarship from Women Identity Purpose Organization. I was really honored and touched by the care of the organization, as well as impressed with their willingness to help. The scholarship took me a long way towards my goals. I must say, my success today as a professional is the direct result of the help I received that enabled me to live in another culture, country and gain experience employers were looking for within my degree field.

I've had the honor to volunteer on several occasions with the WIP organization. Their passion and commitment is insurmountable. WIP truly cares about single women and children, evidenced by the numerous awards they have bestowed upon their recipients. Kudos to the WIP leadership team!
