Do you know a young woman who is lacking a career direction, self-confidence, time and money management skills, parenting resources, and a positive support system? Do you often think it would be helpful for women with these barriers to know their strengths, identify resources in the community to help them, and gain a support system BEFORE they start college classes? If so, I am excited to share “Starting Point” with you!

Classes are FREE, one day a week for 3 hours.
