Break the cycle of poverty: help provide job-training opportunities to women in need.
The crushing cycle of chronic unemployment and poverty can leave women feeling hopeless and helpless, stealing their self-confidence and stranding them in shelters or on the streets. Those without even a GED or high-school diploma have an especially hard time supporting themselves — and many are single mothers who have children to care for as well.
A shelter may offer a temporary roof over their heads, but does nothing to help them toward self-sufficiency. To make lasting changes in their lives, these women need the training, help, and support to successfully develop job skills, find job opportunities, and discover where their talents lie.
Women's Bean Project offers transitional jobs designed to provide women with an immediate income, as well as support services to overcome barriers to employment. Life skills, GED and computer classes, and hands-on training are all crafted to help women support themselves and their families. The tools they gain empower these women to create better lives for themselves, provide their families with hope, and contribute to a stronger community.
You can help get women back on their own two feet. This Gift That Gives More™ helps fund practical workforce training for women in need — from jewelry-making to computer classes, and even forklift certification — setting them up for higher-wage jobs and self-sufficiency.
