Being unemployed is a helpless feeling. Just ask Susan, a woman who came from a life of privilege, yet was desperate to find a job when she and her four children left her abusive husband. Initially, Susan did not feel she needed a place like The Women’s Center. After all, she had a college degree and had lots of experience volunteering. But the job offers did not come in, and the feelings of desperation were growing. Yet Susan found hope on her first day of class at Jobs NOW!. After learning job search and self-marketing skills, Susan was soon offered a job she loves. (See our Annual Report for more information)
