Through UNSHAKEABLE’s Empower to Employ program, they can empower women struggling to reclaim their future from their past trauma of homelessness, substance addiction, domestic violence, and human trafficking. 

Recently, UNSHAKEABLE has been working with Sylvia. She is a young woman in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. She is also a creative mom of 3 children. UNSHAKEABLE has been assisting her in overcoming her lack of self-confidence through one-on-one coaching sessions. They also have Sylvia volunteer at their office to get some hands-on experience in a healthy work environment.  

Sylvia has been meeting with UNSHAKEABLE’s career coach on interview preparation. UNSHAKEABLE was able to secure an in-person interview with one of their business alliance partners for a unique role as a floral assistant. Sylvia impressed everyone in her interview and an offer of employment has been extended to her for the position, which has plenty of room for growth and advancement. 

With United Way of Southern Nevada’s partnership with UNSHAKEABLE, we can support and empower women to reclaim their future from any challenges they may face.
