Thank you for your interest in WORK+SHELTER! Separate from our unit is the WORK+SHELTER non-profit, an organization devoted to job training in cutting and sewing and basic educational modules. By teaching the women that enroll in our program a new skill set, we give them the means to achieve financial agency for themselves. For the vulnerable women we work with financial agency can be life changing.
How can financial agency change lives? Women that have come to train with us and that have then gone on to work for our unit don’t have to make difficult decisions like choosing between feeding themselves and sending their kids to school. With financial agency, our employees don’t need to rely on the often inconsistent income their spouses bring home. Employees living in unsafe or abusive situations are better able to take care of themselves or leave those situations when they have financial agency.
Job training for women positively impacts their futures and those of their families. Help us to expand the reach of our program and please donate today! We rely on your support.
