Reviews for Women's Empowerment

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
