Review for Women's Empowerment, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Women's Empowerment started, as many wonderful things are, by one dedicated woman and in less than a decade has hundreds of volunteers serving hundreds of homeless women and their children. Women's Empowerment has allowed women to enter and return to the job market, find safe housing and gain self-esteem and confidence. It is the only organization in Sacramento which speaks to the needs and dreams of women who have lost everything and feel despair and hopelessness. It is 100% community supported with no government funds. It is a magical program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working weeking over nearly six years, I've seen women transformed such that you could see it in their demeanor and, more measurably, have seen them move from the street, the shelters and the river banks to warm, safe housing.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
