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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Sacramento's Women's Empowerment for three years. The services and support they provide to homeless women are amazing! It opened my eyes to how easy it is to become homeless, and how after a time how difficult it can be to get out of that way of life. They know what their doing at Women's Empowerment, starting with the basics like anger management, self esteem, parental skills then moving onto resume writing, mock interviews and job skills training. I volunteer because the program makes it so easy for me to make a difference. They cover so many of the basics we all take for granted like glasses to see with, child care so women can attend these classes, copies of birth certificates or GED's, affordable housing. I spread the word wherever I go and encourage others to sign up too. Their graduates with new confidence in themselves and a new perspective on life speak to the sucess of the program!

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

The great feeling as I see a women's confidence grow during the 8 week program. The smile on their faces and they proudly show their social workers a resume when they didn't believe they had enough work history to even create one and the tears of joy.
