About Us

Pennsylvania Women Work is a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to empowering women for more than two decades by helping them find lasting employment that pays a family-sustaining wage. We help women overcome life obstacles to employment; develop job search and career skills that are transferable to any job; and forge connections that lead to brighter career paths. Our goal is to help each client achieve long-term career stability and financial independence.


Our free programs are designed to serve a wide range of clients, including displaced workers and homemakers, people reentering the workforce after being incarcerated and educated refugees and immigrants. In addition to our signature career development classes, we provide computer training, job counseling, as well as customer service classes and mentoring opportunities -- all at no cost to our clients. 


Each year, PA Women Work offers events and workshops that provide useful information and support to help clients, as well as other individuals in the community, on their journey to fulfill their personal and professional goals. We are best known for our highly successful New Choices career development program, offered throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
