Mission: The mission of WHW is to provide comprehensive employment support services to empower disadvantaged men, women and teens to achieve economic self sufficiency through employment success.
Results: WHW experienced some amazing growth during 2013-2014. With expanded educational workshops and advanced computer training, this was the very first year in WHW history where we served more clients in our Education Program than in our Apparel Program. Our Resume Development Workshop, where clients work with Resume Coaches to create an effective resume and our Mock Interview Workshop where clients have the opportunity to be video taped as they interview and see just how they present themselves to potential empowers are two of our most popular workshops. Advanced computer classes on Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint are at capacity every week and our LinkedIn Workshop which included professional photos was a favorite. One WHW clients sums it up this way, “You helped me create a resume, build my skills, prepare for interviewing and build my self-confidence. I wouldn’t have this great job today if it weren’t for all of you.” 2013-2014 WHW Highlights •6534 Employment Success Program Clients served, an increase of almost 49%! •3388 Clients attended WHW Educational Workshops and Computer Training •2642 Clients received Professional Apparel and Accessories •1051 Volunteers provided 23,116 hours of service •275 Nonprofit partners sent WHW their clients •WHW received 2,645 inkind donations to support our clients •WHW supporters held 86 Clothing Drives to support WHW job seekers

Community Reviews

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm very impressed with the work that WHW does in our community. I first became involved as the organization is an OC United Way funded non-profit, which means that it meets stringent standards, that are regularly reviewed, to make sure that the funds are being spent in support of programs empowering employment success in the Orange County community. Then I become a donor and have subsequently provided financial support, in kind support, and have spread the word about WHW to my friends and neighbors. This is a great non-profit and deserves to be recognized for the programs and the committed team of staff members and volunteers that offer their time and talent to serving the needs of our community!

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

find a way to provide more funding for their programs.
