I started off as an attendee and really enjoyed the event. I have seen the fruits of this great organization. People connecting on so many levels.
As an accomplished author, I was so moved that I donated book sales to WIP, because I am so sold out to this concept.
The organization is not about bunch of programs, it's about meeting the needs of individuals and the community.

I have learned a lot working with Cynthia and the other ladies on the WIP Board. Cynthia has a passion for helping and uplifting women and it has been an honor to work with her on this behalf. We are so blessed to have an organization like WIP and a leader like Cynthia in our area.

I have enjoyed working with WIP (Women Identify Purpose) as both a volunteer and now as a board member. The vision has allowed me and many other women to be touched both emotionally as well as mentally. Each event that I have been involved with has provided a forum where women are able to uplift other women by sharing not only their struggles but also their accomplishments. The events that I have attended as a volunteer have finally given purpose the struggles and trials I have personally endured as a single mother with a limited budget. When women know that they are not alone in their struggles and there is someone who has endured AND overcome, they are empowered by the strength of those around them. This organization not only gives hope to women who feel powerless but connects them with other women and other organizations that will help them step by step rise to the next level of success. I have been able to encourage others that I have met as well as be encouraged when I needed that extra push! Thanks, WIP!!
