Women Empowerment The House of Charity Women Empowerment Program provides job skills to refugee/immigrant women in Harris County.  Each year the Women Empowerment Program delivers professional development trainings to 100 refugee/immigrant women.  The goal is to prepare them to obtain the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential so they can work as childcare educators.  Refugee/immigrant women in Harris County come mainly from under-developed countries.  They come from living in small-rural communities to live in the fourth largest city in the USA. The majority of these women has never worked outside their homes or family farms.  Some of them have been victims of violent crimes or have witnessed severed abuses.  They are not prepared to seek employment in the USA.  Their dream of becoming self sufficient seems to be out of reach. The Child Development Associate (CDA) credential is a national credential that standardizes the basic requirements for child care providers.  It qualifies people to work in early childhood education in child care centers or home care settings.  The House of Charity Women Empowerment Program is designed to facilitate the process of obtaining a CDA credential for refugee/immigrant women by providing the CDA class instruction, all necessary class materials, and a scholarship to pay for the CDA application fee.  Program Goal: The House of Charity Women Empowerment Program increases the job skills and employment qualifications of refugee/immigrant women in Harris County so they can moves toward self sufficiency.  Program Objective: Increase the job skills of refugee/immigrant women by providing professional development trainings. Increase the employment qualifications of refugee/immigrant women in the field of early childhood education by helping them obtain the CDA credential.
