Women's Empowerment Services of NE Florida, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We advocate for women in need by providing assistance and connecting them with available resources. We assist with eviction and homelessness prevention, offer housing advocacy for those with barriers to renting like credit or background issues, offer transportation assistance in the form of gas cards or bus passes, and provide home essential items like furniture, linens, kitchen items and baby needs that are donated to us from individuals across northeast Florida. We also offer scholarships to women wanting to further their education through GED programs or post secondary adult vocational programs. We have helped women fleeing domestic abuse when the area shelters are full.
One of our first clients came to us after being displaced by a recent apartment complex fire in Orange Park, Florida This family, a single mother and her two teenage daughters, had already been through a difficult time prior to the fire, after being placed in the apartment by a local domestic violence shelter. They lost everything in the fire and literally came to us with the clothes on their backs. We connected them with many resources but mostly were there to offer support and a voice for them in their search for assistance. We are happy to report they now have a permanent residence with most of their immediate needs met.
It is because of needs for women we serve that we are participating the Purple Purse Challenge. Please support the campaign and in turn support our efforts to assist women in need in our community.
