Reviews for Women's Empowerment
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.
