Delivering exceptional, personalized training to help women identify and achieve their employment goals.

Welcome!  Here is a summary of this week’s latest news about our workshops, training classes, events and more!

** ANNOUNCEMENT ** – Tables & Tastings Event

Celebrating 25 years of The Peacemaker Program and 30 years of WERC!

Tables & Tastings is the fusion of two of the area’s premier events (Wine for WERC and Come to the Table), supporting the programs and services at Empowered Pathways.  This exciting event features inspired, one-of-a-kind table creations and beautiful auction items from talented local designers. A themed basket drawing rounds out the stunning array of prizes. Join us for delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts by A Moveable Feast, food stations by Hart’s Hill Inn, wine and beer tastings, and live music by Ronnie Leigh!

The evening culminates with a live auction, where bidders compete to make sure they take home the best Table Design of the night! All of this plus the opportunity to win our grand Prize – a Mother’s Day Spa Package!

Tables & Tastings is not only a fabulous, fun event, but also helps raise critical funds for Empowered Pathways’ programs. By supporting Tables & Tastings you will be helping women find support, skills, and training enabling them to successfully enter the workforce; assisting children who are at the center of contentious custody battles to get into safe, permanent homes; and helping people with disabilities to receive access to quick, appropriate, and compassionate medical care. These services are only possible because of donors like you!
