Who We Serve

 

Every Woman Works Inc. Learning Center is a non-threatening, supportive environment where women who are homeless, recovering from alcohol and drug dependency, in transition from the penal system, recovering from domestic violence, or living in poverty will have an opportunity to develop solid, transferable work skills, to strengthen their sense of self-confidence and to obtain financial independence.

 

Since opening its doors in early 2004, Every Woman Works, Inc. has achieved remarkable success in accomplishing its mission. Since the beginning of the program and with community support, EWW has served over 1,000 women and 3,600 children.

The Barriers

EWW recognizes that debilitating barriers such as homelessness, domestic violence and substance abuse, long periods of unemployment, extenuating circumstances such as lack of education, single parent households, and limited access to child care, and cycles of dependency, such as lack of life and job skills that exist and prohibit success in the lives of many women. They need the safe non-threatening, supportive environment provided at EWW to begin the intense work of rebuilding their lives.
