Textarea-499: Every month we have scheduled a speaking engagement to Empower Women and Unleash Their Purpose. Our goal is to support encourage and teach women who have struggled financially, left a domestic violence situation or who have just came out of homelessness strength, hard work and resources available to them they can reach their goals find their purpose and obtain financial stability.
How-many-individuals: Estimated between 300-500 women in need
What-is-project: Our speaking engagements to Empower Women and Unleash their Purpose while promoting positivity, spreading the word of financial independence, social empowerment, and self-confidence. Research shows that domestic violence is a primary driver into homelessness for women and that gender-based violence is the most significant difference between men and women experiencing homelessness. Domestic violence and homeless/housing services no longer run on parallel paths. While the identification of the connection between these two social problems has engendered change, more work is needed to formulate strategies that are client-centered and survivor-driven change, more work is needed to formulate strategies that are client-centered and survivor-driven.
How-will-you-succeed: We began this speaking engagement once a month starting in January of 2019 our first attendance was 8 women by April our attendance was at 20 women each month and growing.
As of April a total of 55 women attended so far 33 women received amazing results:
