100% of the funds raised at WomenCook! 2015 goes toward helping Work Options for Women with their mission to help impoverished women gain the skills and confidence they need to work their way out of poverty and become gainfully and permanently employed in the food service industry.

Update: Raise $5,161 in 20 days

Thank you, for getting our campaign off to an amazing start!!

We can’t believe we are already over 58% funded after 15 days.

With the funds raised so far we will be able to buy an espresso machine for the new training station!! Thank you for believing in Work Options for Women and for being a part of our mission to empower under-served women through culinary job-training.

 

We need to raise an additional $2,168 in order to reach our goal of $5,161, which will allow us to complete the Barista Training Station at Cafe United. Please help us keep momentum going in the campaign by:

1) Emailing the campaign link, igg.me/at/WOWforSocialChange, to anyone who you think might be interested in contributing
2) Use the social icons on our campaign homepage to share through Facebook, Twitter, and Google+

Work Options Receives Generous Donation to Help Combat Homelessness and Poverty in Denver

A generous donation to Work Options for Women merits celebration: It will make an important difference in the lives of many women in Denver.

From the team at Work Options for Women, we would like to thank Shamrock Shares (the employee giving entity) of Shamrock Foods for the generous donation of $10,000. This money will be used to help combat homelessness and poverty by providing unemployed women with the confidence and skills they need to become gainfully and permanently employed in the food service industry.

Thanks so much to Shamrock Foods and their employees for their generous contribution!

We all pay for Homelessness

From the desk of Catherine Henry

It is so great to see the positive reports out regarding the progress in fighting homelessness here in Denver.  It seems like we finally have a solution that is working!  Our jails and emergency rooms are less crowded, and that means the cost to taxpayers is less.  Good news all around for those who are battling an issue that resonates with all of us. In a recent article published in the Coloradoan, we get a better idea of what resources and money are required to help deliver the services and support necessary to improve a situation  — that does in fact impact all of us.

We at Work Options for Women are always interested to support other programs that are helping our state’s homeless population. Feel free to share your favorite organizations in the comments.
