Creating Opportunities for Women through Volunteerism

The Catherine McAuley Center (CMC) will facilitate a strengths-based, skill-building volunteer experiences program for women in the Transitional Housing Program. Volunteerism is associated with increased employment odds because it offers women the opportunity to build social networks, develop job-related skills and experience, and distinguish themselves from other job applicants. Group education and individual mentoring will assist women with resumes and interview skills, and those interested in micro-enterprise development will receive individualized support.
