Congresswoman Matsui visits the Get A Job Kit program
“Our young adults are having a tough time competing for fewer part-time jobs and summer employment. We provide The Get A Job Kit to our students to boost their self-esteem and get a head start. Job search skills are timeless.”
— New Orleans, Louisiana
California Congresswoman Doris Matsui toured The Get A Job Kit program in May after honoring Women’s Empowerment–the organization that produces the Kit–with the inaugural Women’s Appreciation Award for Organization of the Year in March.
Of Women’s Empowerment, Matsui said: “Women’s Empowerment provides a warm and safe environment for homeless women, empowering them to make the changes needed to obtain jobs, stable housing, and make healthy choices for themselves and their children,” Matsui said. “The good work being done by Women’s Empowerment is evident in the results of those they have helped.” Only a few months earlier, the organization launched The Get A Job Kit paid training program, which prepares women who are homeless with the advanced job skills necessary to succeed in their job searches.
