Women’s empowerment experience

Hi Friends,
As you may or may not know I am on the board of a very wonderful organization called Oil O’ Joy House.   Oil O’ Joy House provides violence prevention support services to individuals and families’ victim of domestic violence. Our objective is to enhance the safety for battered individuals and their families, and to empower them to become free of violent relationships by growing in the knowledge of Christ, discovering their self value, and developing self-sustainable skills through our Independent Lifestyle Training Program.   Oil O’ Joy House provides 24-hour Hotline, domestic violence education, community outreach services, counseling, trainings, and CEU’s to professionals.
We are in the mist of a big undertaking of purchasing a “safe house” for women who are victims of DV therefore we are having a wonderful fund-raiser.  On Saturday, September 15, 2012 we are having a Women’s empowerment fundraiser called – Relax, Release, Rejoice.
As we raise funds we will also enjoy a time together to learn how to:

Relax – And let go of the daily stressors

Release – Whatever or whoever is weighing you down

Rejoice – It’s time to live a life filled with joy.

Giving Back

Blessed to give back

I have been blessed by many people throughout my personal and professional career and feel that it’s important to remember that I give of my time and talent to others in need.    On May 21, I was invited to speak to a group of young adults who are a part of the (CAPS) community assistance program, World of Work program on Chicago’s South Side.

The program is tailored to those who are in the pursuit of their high school diploma or GED while also obtaining job skills training.   During the two hour session, I spoke to the group and lead them through an exercise about discovering their gifts and talents and working towards finding the job that fit their gifts and preparing for an interview.

At the end of the presentation, the young adults were able to ask specific questions as it pertains to the job search and I was impressed with the scope of their questions and enthusiasm.   It is my hope that what I deposited into this great group of individuals will help them as they prepare for their careers.
