At The Tomorrow Project—Helping Women Create Futures Today—we strive to create the perfect recipe for reshaping lives. Your assistance is vital in making this plan a reality. We work with women who have had few opportunities in life, who are abused and prone to violence, abandoned by family, shattered by addiction and/or mental illnesses and have had spotty educations, and poor job histories.
Our goal is to give each woman the necessary skills to become self-reliant and to realize her potential to be a productive individual in our community.
In a production setting the women assemble gourmet food products and other assembly projects—giving them the basic skills necessary to build confidence and hope. Each woman is paid a training stipend, which often is the first income she has ever earned. This small payment conveys a strong message—that both she and her efforts are valued.
Through production assembly, individual coaching, and didactic classes, the women learn valuable work skills including achieving quality assurance, following a directed process, team work, and solving minor production problems.
The Tomorrow Project uses your support to provide training stipends and classes to the women, and to cover operating costs. Since The Tomorrow Project was established in 1994, we’ve had many success stories. Women have participated in a work environment for the first time. Women have transitioned successfully into the workplace. Women received life skills training and other training to help end her homelessness.
