What an amazing ride 2018 has been, and we are so thankful.
Our goals this year were to improve our Impactful Programs & Services, Financial Strength & Stability and Leadership & Advocacy. We can proudly say we have achieved our goals! We have accomplished so much, and it’s all thanks to YOU!
Throughout the year we have had:
- 468 Career Closet visits
- 8,424 program attendance servicing 1,804 individuals
- 2,500 referrals, 255 referrals to domestic violence partner agencies
- 721 employment clients, 39% identified themselves as homeless
- 22 recipients received $1,000 scholarships, 27% previous awardees
80% of our clients live below the ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) limits, which is approximately, $54,000 a year for a family of four. Each of our participants is guided to establish career, financial, relationship and wellness goals to improve their lives and increase their earning potential. Living paycheck to paycheck is a reality for the majority of low-income women, underemployed and single parent moms. Through case management and mentoring, we are able to build a relationship with our clients and identify the underlying issues contributing to their financial and emotion unrest. We cannot express how much it means to us to be able to help these women and we truly thank you for your support.
With your support women of our community can have a place where they can connect to the resources and services needed to gain a sense of confidence, resilience and empowerment.
This year, donors like you have funded 9,030 hours of programming such as mental health counseling and career coaching and we would like to continue our growth in 2019. Please consider making a donation.
Thank you 2018, bring on 2019!
