Women's Empowerment is a community based nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate and empower women who are homeless with the skills and the confidence necessary to secure a job, create a healthy lifestyle and regain a home for themselves and their children. Women's Empowerment is the most comprehensive job-readiness program in Sacramento exclusively designed to serve homeless women and their children. Women's Empowerment is dedicated to ending homelessness one woman, one family at a time.
In fulfillment of our mission, we have launched a social enterprise. The award-winning Get A Job Kit is produced by Women’s Empowerment as part of an innovative paid training program for women who are experiencing homelessness in the Sacramento region. Proceeds from the sale of the kit help to fund the program. Women who participate in the program attend training, work with Employment Specialists to find a job and gain work experience producing the Get A Job Kit. Revenue from the sale of the Kit not only helps to fund the training program, but also provides a paycheck for the trainees.
