Provides low-income women and their families the tools they need to achieve economic success. This is accomplished by connecting those we serve with affordable housing, education resources, job skills training, and racial justice programming.

Racial Justice: Offers programs that educate both youth and adults about systemic racism and other forms of discrimination.   

Racial Justice Programs: Unlearning Racism: Tools for Action; Just Us; Everytown Wisconsin

Economic Empowerment: Provides access to transportation, housing, child care, clothing, and food to ensure that those served can reach their goals.

Economic Empowerment Programs: Transitional Housing Program; Wisconsin Works (W-2); Dress for Success

Workforce Development: Empowers individuals to become full participants in the economic mainstream by linking employers with a talented, skilled workforce, establishing expectations of success for everyone.

Job seekers are guided with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the standards for work readiness.  For employers, workforce development programs close the gap between employer needs and the skills of the available workforce.    

Workforce Development Programs/Services:  Career Opportunity Center; Community Adult Learning Lab; Healthcare Training Institute; Transitional Jobs Program; Skills for Success; Job Placement Services
