Women Working With Women established our first revenue generating enterprise- Mis’cel’la’ny- to help address the critical gaps that exist in the tangible support that is offered to women in transition.

W4 does not feel that these gaps can wait to be addressed; this economic depression has women and their children living in desperate conditions.

Women working With Women’s ultimate objective is to create retail employment opportunities for women who are “hard to place” due to issues of isolation, drug addiction, sex trade experience and violence. The portal through which these retail employment opportunities will be realized iis in our retail venture-Mis’cel’la’ny.

While there are similar pre-employment programs currently in place W4 has a unique perspective to bring to the table. We would like to employ a non coersive program that speaks to the different level of skills that women bring to the table.

How will the $100K be used?
