The Gesher Women to Work Program:
Supporting, Encouraging & Empowering Women

Through individualized coaching, counseling and placement services, Gesher Human Services helps women re-enter the workforce after significant life-changing events, such as financial need due to family job loss, divorce, or the death or disability of a spouse or partner. The program serves women of all ages and educational levels and from all walks of life. Through a successful mix of assessment, peer support, resources and personal growth, 85% of women who complete the program find employment or enroll in additional training or education.

Your sponsorship of Trade Secrets supports the Women to Work Program, as well as other vocational services provided to women.

Women to Work participants emerge with increased self-confidence, goal setting, enhanced communication skills, a support system, financial proficiency, improved decision-making skills, market-ready job search skills, and an action plan for the future.
