From: Joan Burke, Director of Advocacy, Loaves & Fishes

Monday, May 24, 2004=20

Would you like to volunteer an hour a week for 10 weeks to help a woman =
move from homelessness to self-sufficiency?

=20

Women's Empowerment Program, (which spun off from Loaves & Fishes as an =
independent non-profit this year) is an intensive, 8-week program that =
provides support, practical training, childcare and a curriculum =
designed to help homeless women reconnect with their own strengths and =
become self-supporting.  The women learn the basics of finding and =
keeping a job, including skills assessment, interviewing, resume =
preparation, dress for success and job retention. Equally important is =
finding stable housing for each woman - one cannot obtain and maintain =
employment with no address, no phone, no work clothes, no childcare and =
no transportation.  =20

Women's Empowerment is looking for job mentors=20

Can you spare one hour a week for just 10 weeks to help a homeless woman =
get back on her fee?  The only requirement is that you care and want to =
support the courageous efforts of a person trying to make changes in her =
life. =20

Women's Empowerment will match you with an adult student to mentor.=20

The women in the program are homeless and working hard to re-enter the =
workforce.  Each woman is committed to attending classes daily from 9am =
til noon four days each week for eight weeks.  As they learn =
job-readiness skills (e.g., filling out job applications, preparing for =
an interview), it helps to meet with a woman in the community who can be =
supportive.  Having a mentor coach or root a woman along is extremely =
helpful.

Tuesday, May 25th, from 5:30 to 7pm, Women's Empowerment (1400 North C =
Street, Sacramento - across from Maryhouse at Loaves & Fishes) will have =
a job mentor orientation for those who MIGHT be interested.  If  you are =
interested, but unable to attend the orientation, please call Erie at =
Women's Empowerment at 669-2308.

Just one hour each week for 10 weeks makes a difference. Please give it =
a try.

Thanks.

For more information call Erie at (916) 669-2308 or e-mail =
