Women's Empowerment is an innovative, effective, and financially modest organization that works with homeless and impoverished women to transform their lives and circumstances. I've steadily volunteered with the organization for 7 years and have seen thousands of lives changed. The staff is deeply dedicated and highly skilled. Extensive use is made of volunteers, especially as one on one job mentors for each woman. The program balances "soft" personal growth and empowerment work with specific job seeking skills and life management information.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
helping homeless women and their families. I've seen graduates speaking publicly as advocates for the homeless. I've watched a graduate lead workshops about domestic violence. I've visited graduates and their families in new homes.
