Finding a job can be more difficult than people anticipate.  It is estimated that for every 20 job applications a person turns in, they can expect to receive only one opportunity to interview for a job.  Let us help you make the most out of every opportunity you receive.

The YWCA Empowerment Center provides a warm and pleasant place to connect with opportunities.  We know that when you have the information you need and the confidence in yourself, that the possibilities for a bright future are endless.  Every woman is different and within them lies the ability to achieve the success they desire.  Through our assistance, women are able to make their dreams a reality.  All of our services are free and confidential.
