Women Identity Purpose (WIP) is one of the best non-profits around for women. The founder, Cynthia Jones, has an amazing heart for serving single mothers. After attending a WIP event, I strongly believe that women will continue to be empowered through education with this organization for years to come..

I was introduced to Women Identity Purpose through its founder and president and learned to love the mission and vision for this charitable women's organization. The beauty of this organization is that it serves an overlooked population--the working poor single parent who is doing all they know to do to provide the best life possible for her family. WIP is doing a stellar job in making a difference in this population through its programs and services. They are to be commended for their hard work and dedicated service.

I've enjoyed working with WIP as a volunteer. The vision is strong and meaningful. Each of the events provide structure and hope for all women. WIP offers hope to women that may not know their value and connect them with others that are willing to assist them in reaching for the stars.

My recent first volunteer effort was to facilitate a workshop on Interviewing for several of the women associated with one of WIP's community partners. The experience was rewarding because it offered me an opportunity to connect with others that could use my expertise. The ladies were able to gain inisight and suggestions on how best to approach the job market. They were engaged and found the time well spent.

I would encourage anyone to consider volunteering with WIP and supporting the organization financially. It will be time and money well spent.

I have attended two events sponsored by WIP and have enjoyed both greatly. Both evets featured inspirational women who shared their stories of success. I was also able to meet other women, who were in the audience, and learned about them and their organizations. I would recommend their women events to any woman.

As a volunteer of WIP, it is really great to be a part of a non-profit organization that gives so much to women in the community, who other wise would not have support at all. And beyond the organization itself, the organization is lead by women who have so much passion for the progress of other women. This is the type of organization that I enjoy giving my time to, because I know in giving to this organization, I am giving to other women and their families. WIP keep up the great work!
