The Wednesday's Women Program concludes in December 2010.

By Teresa Ferris | Grant Writer

The Wednesday's Women sessions will end in December 2010.  Thank you for your support of this program which served women in career transition.  Your donations helped such women as:

Marjorie* who was a small business owner that saw a dramatic drop in her income when the recession hit.  She was not ready to close her business and so attended the Wednesday's Women to network and learns how to generate alternate sources of income to supplement her business.

Karen* who after 11 years in the same career suddenly found herself downsized.  She was struggling with the interview process.  Time after time, she would be told that she had been the second choice for a position.  Karen learned valuable networking and interviewing skills.  She volunteered a several area non-profits to keep her skills sharp during her job search.

During this past year, Wednesday's Women provided insight and hope for these and other women who struggled with job loss and layoffs during the deepest part of the recession.

Thank you again for your support and we hope that you will continue to support our Dimensions Program with its focus on assisting low-income women who are struggling to overcome poverty and achieve economic independence through sustained employment.
