We Can Help Women Find Meaningful Employment
About the Program
Our program has provided participants in both Toronto and Vaughan with the employment assistance that they need to become job ready. This year, we reached out to newcomers in the Filipino community and to women in shelters across Toronto. Our clients received free one-on-one counselling and emotional support throughout the stressful search for a job. Clients who attended job search workshops and training sessions developed their resume writing and interviewing skills. Employers who participated in our job fairs have hired our clients for employment.
- Number of clients participated: 395
- Number of workshops and group sessions: 55
- Total number of job fairs held: 8
- Participants hired for gainful employment: 60

“Lourdes, I’ve used the resume you did for me. Then the company called and offered me a position. Thank you again for helping me and I really appreciate your support.” Deo B – July 19, 2014
“I wanted to say thank you for taking me under your wing and guided me. I learned a lot from you and I will cherish it always. I know it’s tough out there, finding my niche. Without your program, I’m sure would still be job searching today.” Betty Y – October 28, 2014
“Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds agencies I have dealt with. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble to you and I am made to feel unique, never feeling that I am just one of many clients that you and your office have to deal with each day.” – K.G.
