From free dental and vision exams to mammograms to wellness workshops, NOSW makes sure each woman in the program takes care of her body's needs.
From classes on Appalachian literature and creative writing to group activities like quilt-making, Appalachian arts and culture are a core component of the residency.
We're here to help equip you with the tools you need to take the next step in your employment journey with our career-centered classes and short-term internship.
For three decades, the New Opportunity School for Women, Inc. has been equipping low-income Appalachian women with the knowledge and support they need to build a fulfilling life for themselves, their families,and their communities.
We invite you to join us in furthering our mission as the New Opportunity School for Women partakes in the 2017 GoodGiving Challenge, hosted by the Blue Grass Community Foundation and Smiley Pete Publishing. The GoodGiving Challenge is a fun, easy, and powerful way for people to make a difference in Kentucky. By giving through the GoodGiving portal, at https://www.bggives.org/NOSW, your money has the chance to go even further as nonprofits compete for more money based on things like the number of donors, the amount donated, and potential matching donations.
It’s that time of year, again! The New Opportunity School for Women will be hosting its two-week residential session in 2018 from February 25th to March 10th, where women will be taking classes on self-esteem, integrative health and wellness, and so much more.
