THE STORY:

  Economic self-sufficiency is the backbone of American society. Being able find and keep a good paying job is the dream of the women who come to the Women’s Center.  Breaking Barriers for Economic Independence will help achieve those dreams for women who face overt obstacles in their lives. The community served by this project are women who are 1) survivors of violent crimes such as domestic violence and sexual assault, 2) homeless, 3) recently widowed, separated or divorced, or 4) are living with cancer. The Women’s Center offers services to women that help promote success in achieving their potential, economic self-sufficiency in a safe and welcoming environment. Our main goal is to help our clients achieve and maintain employment through one-on-one counseling, career counseling, mentoring, providing access to effective therapies and support and life coaching. The need for this project is an extension of our employment program. From our cancer support survivors, we have learned one of the most significant hardships they face after a cancer diagnosis is staying employed. This project will focus on helping women who are living with cancer to return to work sooner or stay employed while going through treatment for their cancer. We will do this by providing them access and financial support for mental health care and for complementary and alternative medicine therapies, specifically reflexology, massage and lymphatic massage (for cancer survivors who have lymph node involvement). This treatment allows survivors to get back on their feet sooner.  The self-empowerment achieved through education allows for economic independence, as the survivor becomes an active participant in her own physical and mental health goals.
