[/gem_diagram][vc_column_text]This program is largely possible through the funding and support of Islamic Relief, USA.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text css_animation=”none”]Women’s Empowerment (WE) provides women with a comprehensive, clear, and detailed plan for the path toward financial independence and social acclimation. Our team works with participants to develop a strategy for self-sufficiency. We also identify services needed by the family to remove barriers to self-sufficiency, refer them to supporting agencies, and track the women’s progress towards their goals.

Often referred by partner agencies, program participants go through a thorough screening process before being invited to participate. During the program, our WE team provides support and trains the participants in the following areas:

  • Rental credits
  • Utility assistance
  • Transportation assistance
  • Social integration
  • Financial literacy
  • Employment referrals
  • English as a second language classes

The program links and coordinates assistance from other institutions and organizations providing medical, education, and other types of support.

The underlying principle of our program is to meet the basic unmet needs of our clients to help them shift their focus to long-term stability. WE provides participants with a strategic and self-driven approach to independence.[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”30″][vc_separator color=”turquoise”][vc_empty_space][vc_tta_accordion active_section=”4″ collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”Become a WE Volunteer Mentor” tab_id=”1556766207727-630491be-fb6c”][vc_raw_js]JTNDc2NyaXB0JTIwdHlwZSUzRCUyMnRleHQlMkZqYXZhc2NyaXB0JTIyJTIwc3JjJTNEJTIyaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZyZWZ1Z2VlbGluay5mb3Jtc3RhY2suY29tJTJGZm9ybXMlMkZqcy5waHAlMkZ3ZV92b2x1bnRlZXJfbWVudG9yJTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGc2NyaXB0JTNFJTNDbm9zY3JpcHQlM0UlM0NhJTIwaHJlZiUzRCUyMmh0dHBzJTNBJTJGJTJGcmVmdWdlZWxpbmsuZm9ybXN0YWNrLmNvbSUyRmZvcm1zJTJGd2Vfdm9sdW50ZWVyX21lbnRvciUyMiUyMHRpdGxlJTNEJTIyT25saW5lJTIwRm9ybSUyMiUzRU9ubGluZSUyMEZvcm0lMjAtJTIwV0UlMjBWb2x1bnRlZXIlMjBNZW50b3IlM0MlMkZhJTNFJTNDJTJGbm9zY3JpcHQlM0U=[/vc_raw_js][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][gem_button size=”large” corner=”3″ separator=”single” icon_pack=”elegant” text=”Donate Now” link=”url:%2Fdonate|||” text_color=”#ffffff” hover_text_color=”#ffffff” background_color=”#3b38f4″ hover_background_color=”#387af4″][gem_divider margin_top=”120″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
