WOMEN’S MENTORING NETWORK

“Transforming Lives, Transforming Communities”

Thank you to all the amazing women who attended the Women’s Mentoring Network & Dress for Success kickoff event for our “Women Inspiring Women” speaker event at Franklin Street Works! State Representative Caroline Simmons shared amazing stories about mentors, family, and her personal career success. 

Women’s Mentoring Network empowers low-income women and their families by providing the support services and programs needed to help them find better employment and educational opportunities.  Programs focus on Workforce Development and Financial Literacy.

 

The individuals that walk through our door are hardworking individuals  – they are working one or two jobs or working and going to school.  Most are living paycheck-to-paycheck. They are not looking for handouts.  These women voluntarily seek our help so that they may have the ability to move forward in life and provide a better life for their families.

 

The staff provides the clients with one-on-one in-office services, as well as Life Skills Workshops.  Women’s Mentoring Network is a multi-generational, family organization.   In addition to assisting the women, we work with the children of the families that we serve to assist the students with achieving their goals as they navigate their way through high school and college.  We also recently started a tutoring program for elementary school and middle school students.  

  • Providing services that promote purpose, opportunity and foster positive life expectations
  • Building an educational and social foundation that allows maximization of potential
  • Enabling individuals to mainstream as productive, skilled members of the workforce
  • Breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty
