The Empowerment Program Empowers Homeless Women

This is a fabulous idea! This organization hires homeless women taking them out of the shelters to train them to make jackets that are given to the homeless.

They also provide training for other careers for those who wish to move on once they are established. We need more ideas like this one. Check out the video and consider donating to help this worthwhile program.

Kate’s Causes — Skid Row Carnival of Love for LA Homeless

 

 

I heard about this event in Los Angeles from my daughter-in-law who volunteered. I wanted to help in some way this year. One of my resolutions for 2018 was to work more actively in helping those in need.

Kate’s Causes…

As many of you know, I’ve written several blogs on homelessness and the One Million Project’s commitment to raise money for EMMAUS.  Another event has caught my attention thanks to Dr. Sheena Macleod, Emma Short and Emma Park.  The “Emma’s” will be attending the Sleep in the Park event in Edinburgh,  Scotland on Dec. 9, 2017.

Check out the blog on the One Million Project website for more information about how they hope to eradicate homelessness in Scotland.
