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 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.

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

Find a way to recruit more help.

WIP provides direction and mentoring opportunities to single mothers while encouraging them to pursue their dream. The workshops, events and speakers are insightful, dedicated and encouraging.

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

I would duplicate the efforts of WIP in other major metropolitan cities.

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.

WIP is the best kept secret in Memphis! It is truly a conduit for change. I appreciate what WIP offers for women in the Memphis area and community. I look forward to working with Cynthia Jones and the other incredible women of WIP in 2014!

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!

I've enjoyed working with WIP as a volunteer. The vision is strong and meaningful. Each of the events provide structure and hope for all women. WIP offers hope to women that may not know their value and connect them with others that are willing to assist them in reaching for the stars.
