I am a facilitator who has worked with many different non-profit organizations and Women's Empowerment stands out as a shining star that is true to its mission of ending homelessness one woman at a time. This small, but mighty organization is truly making a difference, providing women with practical training, support, access to information about resources and empowering them to overcome obstacles and get their feet back on the ground. Helping women get back into the workforce or back to school, back into housing, and reunited with families, this organization is not only helping women directly, but entire families of children. The director and staff are nothing short of amazing. It should be a role model for other cities and is so deserving of any support anyone can afford to give.

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

Meeting their graduates and working with the staff.

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

Meeting their graduates and hearing real life turnaround success stories.

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

Nothing short of amazing. Buckets full of practical support and compassion and positivity and hard work.

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

Make an even bigger difference!

One of my favorite experiences has been meeting Candace. She was homeless due to domestic violence. I saw her working hard every day to accomplish her graduation requirements. She was motivated to turn her life around, taking advantage of every opportunity presented to her. Today, Candace has a job. She volunteers her time on the speakers bureau at Women's Empowerment because she wants to spread awareness and inspire others. Hers is just one of many powerful stories. Women's Empowerment really makes a difference! And that's why I give part of my pay check back every month.
