Bridges Pre-Employment Program

Women in our communities face a variety of systemic barriers accessing employment. These barriers can be compounded by abuse. Whether it’s from a family member or a husband or boyfriend, experiencing violence will only make it harder to acquire the skills, educational certifications, or opportunities that make employment more possible. We work with women to assess where they’re at and where they want to be.
