For the past few years, my firm has been fortunate enough to provide various legal services to CWEE participants. I very much enjoy working with the participants and the support they receive from CWEE personnel is extraordinary.

One of the highlights of my year is taking pictures of the women and men of CWEE. I have the utmost respect and admiration for the graduates of this program, and especially the Alumni Award Winners.

I go to sleep at night with a purpose and wake up every morning with something to look forward to.

Without CWEE I do not know what I would have done. From going through a divorce with 5 kids and losing my house and job all at once, I had nothing. But when I started to go to CWEE and realize that people do still care and want to help. It made me feel strong and not to give up. I have my Silver Flame award sitting on my desk at work to remind me of where I have been and who helped me to get where I am today.

CWEE has been a wonderful and positive experience for me. I’ve updated my skills and am preparing to re-enter the workforce. It has revived my self-worth.

Michelle, CWEE Participant
CWEE has helped me build my self-esteem, I feel worthy and inspired to do something positive everyday. I still wake up after 13 years excited about coming to work. CWEE has taught me how to use my passion for helping others. I use my outgoing personality, customer service, and bi-lingual skills in a way that helps others achieve their goals and aspirations. Because of my wonderful experience at CWEE, I’m able to share it with others.
