** Job-Readiness **
Women and children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. Helping each woman achieve self-reliance is the best long-term solution to this shocking fact. Employment is often a critical missing piece for many women trying to get back on their feet. To address this, Women’s Empowerment’s extensive job-readiness curriculum includes:
• Career mentoring
• Computer literacy
• Financial literacy
• Interviewing skills
• Job seeking skills
• Professional development
• Resume and cover letter building

** Empowerment & Support **
Homelessness is an isolating-experience. Women often experience a loss of self-esteem, confidence, and identity. Through empowerment and support services women reclaim their hope, strength, and place in the community. Women’s Empowerment’s support and empowerment services include:

• A lifetime support network of peers, staff, and volunteers
• Education, assistance, and advocacy with housing, housing rights, and legal resources
• Hair, clothing, and makeup services/supplies
• Individual counseling
• Managing emotions curriculum
• On-site childcare
• Support groups
• Transportation vouchers/reimbursements

• Dental & vision screening and referrals
• Family violence prevention
• Healthy snacks/lunches
• Hygiene supplies education and access
• Mental health counseling and referrals
• On-site health screening and testing
