2020 Career Development and Economic Empowerment Program


Sister2Sister Support Groups

Our Career Development and Economic Empowerment Program (CDEEP): is a 7 week workshop that educates & enriches the lives of gender diverse individuals and parents who are victims of violence, unemployed, homeless, veterans, disabled, undocumented, formerly incarcerated, or in recovery, to help them gain, maintain, & advance in employment that leads to wellness & recovery, and full self-sufficiency.

Over 60% of our participants successfully gain employment or advance in their careers, while approximately 18% continue their education based upon the resources, tools, and skills provided them.

This year's program begins Saturday March 7, 2020 and runs each Saturday through Saturday April 18, 2020, at MacDonald Avenue Church, 4709 MacDonald Avenue, Richmond, CA (entry on MacDonald the offices) from 9:00am - 4:00pm.

Our Sister2Sister support groups are for women, young girls, and/or gender identity/expressive people who are victims and survivors of violence, homelessness, sexual assault, incarceration, human trafficking, and addiction. In addition, we serve family and friends who want to learn more ways on how to better support loved ones impacted by trauma. Click here to download a copy of our brochure.

This program is held each Thursday from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at MacDonald Avenue Church in Richmond, with holiday breaks throughout the year.

Please drop in, or email us at, to sign up or schedule a 1:1 appointment. We welcome you with open arms.
