Mission: Pittman used personal funds to get the organization going. She did all necessary paperwork for WSBE to receive 501(c)(3) non profit status. Pittman does 501(c)(3) papers for other new agencies to support the organization. Early year 2000, we were chosen for the CDBG (city block) grant for our project "West Englewood Women on the Move." The goal of the organization is to expand its self employment training program to include job readiness, and GED training for women on welfare or who have never worked.
The Women's Small Business Exchange was very helpful to me recently in 2011. I wanted to start a party planning business but didn't know where to begin. Someone stated they could help me and was going to charge me $250.00 to help me get started.
One of the WSBE staff was at a meeting I attended and saved me from making a huge mistake. It happened to be the director of the agencey. She offered me an informative hand and I received a large package at no cost. It was everything I needed to get started in business along with other resources I didn't know about.
