Adopt-a-Shelter Program not only provides a home cooked meal but we also donate clothes and toiletries at local shelters in the metropolitan area. This allows IW4AL to have one on one contact with each resident where we encourage and provide resources and referral information to include counseling in treatment services, mental health, etc. Resume Writing & Solutions will be onsite giving their tips on resume writing and job searching. HIV testing will be provided by The Women Collective and Under Her will be providing bras and feminine products for women residents. This has proven to be a tremendous impact to the women in each shelter.

IW4AL is in the process of locating a facility to initiate it's employment program. This would be a job placement program that assists individuals in gaining employment and financial security and stability.  

Program activities would include résumé and cover letter building, mock interviewing, assistance with completing online job applications, professional workshops and transportation assistance and more...

It is also a great concern for IW4AL to be able to truly help these individuals in the community in other areas of their lives. We know if you’re not happy, healthy and thriving to be all that you can be employment can be very unstable. It will also be our goal to make sure that our clients are connected to the services they need whether it’s housing, counseling, etc. 

Stay tune for details.
