Our Transition Housing program hosted their own version of “What Not to Wear” to empower women in the workforce during their latest monthly gathering.

The heart behind meetings is to impart important life skills, promote unity and provide emotional encouragement.

The Transitional Housing staff works hard to bring in community leaders to present topics that clients can incorporate in their everyday life at home, work, and applied to their educational goals. Clients also have the opportunity to voice barriers and find solutions in an intimate setting.

The purpose for this particular evening was to show the clients in a fun way how to dress appropriately to land that perfect job that leads to a promising career.

Past topics have included:

  • Resume Development
  • Professional Networking
  • Financial Planning: Developing Budgets and Savings
  • Improving Credit
  • Fun Tips to Save Money: Couponing
  • Goal Setting: Creating Vision Boards
  • Developing Healthy Boundaries in Relationships
  • Healthy Eating and Diets
  • Improving Self-Esteem
  • Career Goals-Strong’s Assessment
  • Personal Safety and Self Defense

“When our clients are wholly confident in their abilities and armed with the tools to succeed, there is simply no stopping them,” says LaDondra Wilson, Transitional Housing Manager, “It’s amazing how encouragement can lift the spirit to conquer what might have felt impossible without it.”

If you have a desire to help these families thrive with your resources or expertise, we’d love to chat with you. Contact Transitional Housing Manager LaDondra Wilson for more information about our program.
