Stories of Transformation
As a young woman with high anxiety, Bri was unsure where to begin when it came to meeting the goals she wanted to achieve for herself. She worked with her mentor to figure out her passion and create an action plan for accessing a career in cosmetology. She is now in school, pursuing her cosmetology degree and excited about the future!
Sheila was a trained cosmetologist when she came through our three-day program, but her heart wasn’t really in the work. After attending the three-day program and working with our staff, Sheila realized her calling was to provide peer-support for those suffering from addiction. So she set out on a new path and now has her “dream job” working to help other women in recovery.
When she attended our three-day program in Laurel County, Nora was recently widowed. Having been out of the workforce for several years, she was overwhelmed by her loss and the need to find work so she could support her family. Attending the three-day program gave Nora the confidence boost she needed to put herself out there again. She’s now enjoying great benefits working at the clothing store in her hometown.
Learn how you can help empower women like Bri, Sheila and Nora to live their best lives.
