WERC is the first step in the long, arduous journey to lasting change.
When a woman seeks assistance through WERC, they are no longer alone. We become their coach, helping them navigate and eliminate obstacles as they successfully chart a course from modest goals to big dreams. WERC seeks to have all women in need of work employed in a career which gives them satisfaction and respect.
“WERC got me back on my feet and back in the work force! I learned that it wasn’t too late to start over and choose a new career path. Thanks to WERC I’m proud to say I am working in a job I love and I am proud of myself again.” – WERC Graduate
“Jenny” lost her job after 30 years of working for the same company. After almost a year of searching, she was worried she would never find another job.
“Deanna” was struggling to secure a salaried job after ten years working as a stay-at-home-mom. With outdated skills and a loss of self-confidence, she felt lost and overwhelmed when it came to job searching.
“Kate” was determined to make the challenging move from reliance on public assistance to self-sufficiency. With three children to support she was committed to creating a better life for her family.
All of these women were able to achieve success as a result of the intensive support and training they received through the Women’s Employment & Resource Center.
How You Can Help and Make a Difference
YOU have the power to help women like Jenny, Deanna, and Kate through an exciting new campaign called The Power of Five!
For a minimum donation of just $5 a month ($60 per year) you can play a pivotal role in the lives of women struggling to re-enter the workforce.
- WERC invites you to be among the first to make an immediate and positive impact in the lives of families struggling with the devastating effects of unemployment and poverty.
- WERC is a cost-effective, comprehensive and time-tested program, returning $14 for every $1 spent, as women become tax-paying employees and important contributors to our community. This is an outstanding return on investment.
- Every dollar donated through this campaign stays in our local community to help families living in the Mohawk Valley so you can be assured that your donation is being used to support our local economy.
You may consider making your donation in honor or memory of someone who has made a positive impact in your life. Or offer your encouragement to someone who is on their career journey by donating in their honor!
We hope you will consider joining WERC’s Power of Five Campaign as we strive to help women and their families achieve lasting, positive change. Your donation has the power to help families succeed as they make the long, arduous journey from poverty to employment. Your donation carries the power to transform lives.
