I lost my job a few months ago, the bills have piled up and my house is going into foreclosure. I have no help left…
My husband left me with nothing. I have to start over. How am I going to support my family after being out of the job market for so many years?????
In my country I was a doctor, here I work cleaning motel rooms, I will never get ahead…
I’m living in my car with my three kids because they told me the shelters are full here. I have no place to turn, can you help me?
These are the voices of just a few of the women who came to the door of our “sister” company Pinnacle Career Resources during these past few years. As our job market and economy took a turn, women were impacted the hardest, especially single women with children.
We heard one heartbreaking story after another.
All of these women felt there was nowhere else to turn. Social service agencies turned them down or made them feel so degraded they just wouldn’t go back. They are women from all walks of life: professionals, stay-at-home Moms, domestic violence victims, women who have been trying to get ahead for years and women who were affluent one day and found themselves one step away from poverty the next. Possibly your neighbor next door that you never knew was struggling so.
Well there finally is a place women can go to get help–the Pinnacle Empowerment Center
