Women's Opportunity Center - YMCA of Burlington County
May 26, 2010
The Women's Opportunity Center is designed to help women gain economic self sufficiency as they go through the tough process of separation, divorce, death or disability of a spouse. The services are comprehensive and there are no income guidelines. Services provided include counseling, professional workshops related to empowerment and improvement of self esteem; legal issues. computer training, resume preparation and job referrals, food bank and interview clothing attire. A woman feels comfortable at the Center and is empowered to take charge of her life. While the goal is economic self sufficiency, other positive outcomes are evident: daycare, holistic family relationships, and coping skills, just to name a few. The Center's accomplishments are too numerous to mention and the current Director has also taken on the task of fund raising due to limited grant funding.

amazement of the countless numbers of women who have accomplished achievable goals in their lives and made better lives for themselves and their families.
