Pinnacle Empowerment Center---Helping Women Plan for Careers and Life

        The Pinnacle Empowerment Center was founded in 2009 at a time of unparalleled economic stress, especially for women who found themselves at a roadblock either in their career or personal life and had nowhere to turn. A small but committed group of individuals saw a desperate need for this organization to ensure that women and families in our area get the customized services they truly need for long term financial stability.

          With the economic downturn in the area, there’s been an increase in women falling into poverty or deeper into poverty by losing their jobs, incurring increased debt, losing their homes and being unable to meet basic needs for themselves and their families. Area social service providers have seen an increase in demand for services in the community. 

         The focus has traditionally been on short-term ad hoc crisis services, which are not comprehensive enough to help a woman who is about to fall into poverty or already in poverty and falling deeper into it.

          The Pinnacle Empowerment Center is offering intensive coaching; counseling and training to the most vulnerable women in the region in key areas to help women earn family-sustaining wages and provide the tools they need to attain economic security.
Overcoming barriers to success
Pathways to family-sustaining jobs and careers and entrepreneurship
Financial Education, Asset Building and Wealth Creation
Education and Training Options for long-term success
Resource Coordination to help with stabilization and prevention services.
Women and their families will know the resources that are available in the community in the event that a crisis occurs in their lives.

The Center will offer Career Workshops starting this Thursday that will focus on the following:
Do you know your top 5 career values?
Do you know what skills you have that are the most sought after by potential employers?
Do you know what it takes to be successful in landing your next job?
