WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The Westchester Jewish Community Services is giving assistance to women looking for jobs.
The White Plains-based group recently received a grant from the Leir Charitable Foundations to continue Women-Helping-Women, an "initiative designed to provide information, resources and services through workshops for women who are unemployed or seeking transition to other jobs," according to a press release.
“Through Women-Helping-Women we have reached a diverse group of women whose lives are affected by the recent downturn in the economy,” said Lenore Rosenbaum, MS, director of Women-Helping-Women in the release. “Our aim is to bring them useful and practical information that they can easily apply to help improve their life situations.”
The 12 workshop series have reached more than 600 women throughout Westchester with information ranging from identifying strengths to retooling skills, Rosenbaum said in the release. The series has also covered educational opportunities, trends in the job market, small business opportunities, community resources, money management, debt consolidation and legal issues, according to the release.
The next series of workshops is scheduled for Fall 2013 and those interested in finding out more about Women-Helping-Women or willing to lend their expertise to the program are asked to contact Lenore Rosenbaum at 914-761-0600 x 308 or email@example.com.
