Get your tickets to the 15th Anniversary Celebration of Independence Gala that benefits Women’s Empowerment, a local nonprofit job training and empowerment program for women and children who are homeless.
The event raises funds for the organization and honors the group’s 1,297 graduates. Guests will mingle with graduates from the program and enjoy a formal dinner, live and silent auctions, live music and presentations from the graduates.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, Women’s Empowerment was recently featured on NBC’s TODAY Show for offering the most comprehensive job-readiness program in the Sacramento area designed specifically for women who are homeless and their children. The 2014 Organization of the Year has graduated 1,297 homeless women and their 2,700 children. Last year, 93% of graduates found homes and 83% found jobs or enrolled in school or training.
The program combines self-esteem courses, job training, health classes and support services to help homeless women across diverse ages, races and cultures. Women’s Empowerment is funded solely through private donations from the community.
