Initiated in 1998, Women and Work (W&W) is a life-changing program for marginalized women living in New York City and neighboring areas. The FREE program helps women rebuild their lives by focusing on attaining both personal and economic stability through an innovative and comprehensive approach to workforce development and life-strategizing skills. W&W reaches across all races, ethnicities, ages, religions, and sexualities; it serves women who are victims of domestic/family violence, single mothers, immigrants, displaced homemakers, downsized and low-wage workers. Inclusiveness and community building are important parts of the program’s efforts to create a safe learning environment for the these at-risk women. The holistic curriculum focuses on personal and professional development, including financial education; computer and technology skills; literacy and humanities; and job readiness, retention, and mobility. Women and Work contributes to building stronger individuals, families, and communities by providing the tools needed to sustain long-term, intergenerational change.
