I became homeless while pregnant and disabled. Women's empowerment was able to provide the resources I needed to find permanent low income housing and other services needed at the time. They truly care about the women in their program, and holding them accountable for program basics. This is the foundation it takes to rebuild self esteem and self love - necessary tools to be happy, healthy, and successful.

This is one of the 'WOW' organizations you love to stumble upon. The volunteers are absolutely wonderful and nice and its such an awesome program that is instrumental to ending homelessness. They give a hand up rather than a hand out. They truly do empower their students!
I and our DCHS
ROTC Cadets were able to volunteer for them on their moving day and they loved every minute of it. The kids left there feeling empowered themselves, a very enriching experience for them.

From the fist time I encountered this organizaton and it's wonderful Executive Director, Lisa Culp, I knew this was the kind of "bootstrap" organization that makes a real difference in women's lives. For several yers I gladly gave them financial support and I participted in yearly mock interviews to help prepare the women for the job market. I'm now proud to serve on the Board.

Women's Empowerment gives homeless women the resources and skills to successfully obtain work and safe housing for themselves and their children. Each graduating class gains valuable life skill lessons and hands-on training to become productive citizens and employees. Graduates receive ongoing classes in financial literacy as well as professional interpersnal support.

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

Expand it's financial resources so that each class could accomodate more women.

My company has donated to Women's Empowerment before, so I had some familiarity with them. Entirely unrelated to work, I was doing some work with the homeless here in Sacramento, and when I suggested to a couple homeless women that they should try Women's Empowerment, they both said they'd heard great things about the program. They didn't know that the program provided transportation (one of them had a recurring leg injury), which they were excited to learn. I'm hoping they were able to get connected and off the streets.

Women's Empowerment is an innovative, effective, and financially modest organization that works with homeless and impoverished women to transform their lives and circumstances. I've steadily volunteered with the organization for 7 years and have seen thousands of lives changed. The staff is deeply dedicated and highly skilled. Extensive use is made of volunteers, especially as one on one job mentors for each woman. The program balances "soft" personal growth and empowerment work with specific job seeking skills and life management information.

The Great!

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

helping homeless women and their families. I've seen graduates speaking publicly as advocates for the homeless. I've watched a graduate lead workshops about domestic violence. I've visited graduates and their families in new homes.

Many organizations say they do important work to help women succeed, but Sacramento's Women's Empowerment does--each and every day, year after year. And no other non-profit does it with more grace and dignity and yet, daunting budgetary contraints. By providing women with a safe environment in which to grow and tackle their toughest fears, Women's Empowerment does the work of God on Earth. The walls in the cheerful yet sparse main classroom are literally papered with success stories of hundreds of women who've found employment and most importantly, found themselves and tasted success for perhaps the first time in their lives because of this program. Their outstanding and dedicated staff and volunteers all work collaboratively with their heads, hands and hearts to inspire, motivate and help women live better, eat better, manage finances better, work better and handle stress better. And so much more. In my case, I teach business etiquette skills to empower students to interview confidently, get and keep their jobs in today's tough economy. It is a privilege to present to such a motivated group and an honor to play a small role in one of Northern California's finest humanitarian legacies.

The Great!

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

Every time I present, I am welcomed by a motivated group of 25 to 30 women who focus on seeing the light rather than darkness. They take notes, are respectful and always appreciate helpful information. They are goal-oriented and focused on the future.

Women's empowerment is awesome. The Charles A. Jones Skills and Business Education Center has partnered with them for over ten years to assist their clients in becoming self sufficient and productive members of their families and communities. It is always a joy to see the women walk across the stage at graduation knowing that it is because of such a great organization and partnership with Women's Empowerment.

The Great!

I have personally seen dozens of women graduate form the Women's Empowerment Program and then come to our Vocational school and graduate and then find jobs and be successful.

No changes, great program...wish they could serve more women.

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

The friendly staff and the enthusiasm of the clients

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

encouraging, intelligent, warm, and kind

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve so many deserving women to become successful and confident members of their families and communities.

Ways to make it better...

nothing.. great work done here

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

they could use more money to help more women

One thing I'd also say is that...

Women's Empowerment has not only been a success for the women that are in the program but has allowed indivduals like myself, partners in the community, to gain knowledge and expertise in working with women to better assist them in their endeavors.

Compassionate, competent and caring staff have created a highly successful program to help homeless women find jobs, housing, education, and the self esteem they badly needed. Women come into the program feeling broken and worthless; they leave knowing they are capable and precious. It is truly magical.

The Great!

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

seeing women find themselves, believe in themselves, and is seeing their families develop renewed faith in them.

To say that I am impressed with Women’s Empowerment is an understatement. Their expectation of success for the women who are enrolled is obvious and the compassion and clarity with which they offer their services is really inspirational. Many of their clients are women who have given up on themselves and with the help of staff and volunteers, I have watched them slowly get their dreams back. It’s an honor to be in their company

The Great!

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

I see women with new hope for themselves and their children. I have met graduates who are living independently and finding jobs.
