As a proud former board member and chair, I would like to share my admiration and respect for this organization. The staff at Vermont Works for Women is incredibly professional, caring, and smart. The programs they deliver for women and girls are outstanding and the outcomes are impressive. I remember attending a training program graduation at the Dale Correctional Facility for Women several years ago. The lump in my throat grew as I listened to a father pour out his gratitude to VWW for providing his daughter (an incarcerated woman at the end of her sentence) with real job skills, encouragement and support. He thanked VWW for giving her the chance after many years of failure, to be successful at something! He told the audience that he was confident that she would find a good job and be able to support herself. I will never forget that day!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
professional, organized, caring, experts in their fields, and committed to their mission to support women and girls.
