Empowerment, Support and Programs
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our "Celebrating Our Mentors" fundraiser at the Woodway Beach Club on September 27th.
The night was filled with inspirational speeches from our speakers, Dr. Patty Ann Tublin and Julie Avellino. We honored both Kyri Drakopoulos and Liz Quesada for their dedication and support of the organization.And we had a chance to hear from one of our members about her journey with our organization.
Thank you to our Sponsors, Pitney Bowes, Citizens Bank and First County Bank for their support.
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
