White House Guest and WWEE Graduate Julie Kaas Shares Her Story of Pushing Back from the Brink

Heal, Hope and Transform

WWEE empowers women and men to create better lives for themselves and their families.  We accomplish this by teaching them the skills to find – and keep – jobs that provide a genuine living wage.  On the work front, WWEE teaches job-readiness, computer and workplace skills training.  On the home front, we help with housing assistance and support services to low-income residents of Pierce and King Counties.  Washington Women’s Employment and Education is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
