The Black Friday frenzy and Cyber Monday madness are over, and now it's time to think about ways to give back you our community.
#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together.
This year, TWO great agencies (The Women's Employment and Resource Center and The Peacemaker Program) came together to become Empowered Pathways. To celebrate that, we're giving you a chance to support us this Giving TWOS-day! Here's how it works:
- Follow the link below to support our TWO great programs: WERC-Place Readiness and CCAP!
- Donate at least TWO dollars (but feel free to give more!)
- You get TWO chances to win a gift card for $22 for your favorite area restaurant
- You can give any time between Tuesday, November 27th and Tuesday, December 4th (that's TWO Tuesdays!)
- We will choose TWO winners
Our WERC-Place Readiness Program is hoping to provide TWO times the resources to women joining (or rejoining) the workforce! Your donations will DIRECTLY provide gas cards and bus passes to help women travel to interviews, uniforms and shoes to help women look more professional for interviews and for work, and ensure that women and their families have access to other resources needed to gain independence!
Our Child Custody Advocate Program is hoping to serve TWO times the families caught in contentious custody battles! Your donations will DIRECTLY provide mileage for home visits to ensure that children are in a safe and permanent home, cover travel expenses to interview family to ensure that children's needs are met, and provide quality training to our advocates!
We offer a variety of services for schools and other educational institutions. Dispute resolution can help by providing tools to teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and students to address a wide range of issues without adding cost. Empowered Pathways has a long history of providing innovative, evidence-based services for schools and youth in our community.
These individual services are available at our offices, at the school building, or can even be incorporated into an integrated school-wide program with training, peer programming, and other wraparound services.
