Recently we received a report from 2012 WDP Grantee, Work Options for Women. WOW is a culinary job training program designed to help disadvantaged individuals move out of poverty by helping them obtain entry-level employment in the food service industry. They target disadvantaged women who have multiple barriers to employment: little to no work experience, homelessness, lack of education, mental health issues, substance abuse and often criminal histories. This program is open to both men and women – however the vast majority of clients are women.
Our grant, made possible by your offerings, covered the cost of culinary training and a support program for 20 students! Join us in prayer for the women who received the training this year, that they may find employment to support themselves and their families.
