What We Do
We provide knowledge and resources that empower women to improve their quality of life.
How it works: Participants attend monthly workshops or seminars on an array of topics. Each meeting consists of the key elements: keynote speakers who lead informational discussions on financial literacy, life skills, health/wellness, coping with grief, networking groups, opportunities for career coaching, mentoring, referrals, and resources.
Why it Works: Women making the transition from unemployment into the workforce face a myriad of challenges from understanding corporate culture to handling personal finances, often with no support or guidance. EnVision Proven Success provides a safe environment where participates can learn how to network and develop professional skills.
Participants also have the opportunity to share their proven success stories online and in our signature publication “EnVision Proven Success” selected by our partnership organizations/publication team members.

Women, Food, & Conversation! (Workshops and Community Support Group Session)
Held for participants ages 21 & older at various libraries and/or other community locations.
All workshops are open & FREE for EPS participates and a $15 donation registration fee for guest to attend is required. Light refreshments are served.
We all experience different life changes that bring us to the decision to pursue a new direction, this is the common thread we share as women. Each life change poses different challenges, and it's always easier to make a transition with advice from those who can relate and who have/had similar obstacles.
By attending the workshops you can begin self-care. The purpose for the group is to offer mutual support, provide and evaluate relevant information, relate personal experiences, listen to and accept others experiences, provide sympathetic understanding and establish social networks.
Whether you're looking for inspiration, wisdom, encouragement or some light-hearted moments, we invite you to share a meal and indulge yourself in inspirational conversation with other women just like you! Topics are centered on a variety of issues women face today.
