Testimonials from women CWNY has helped:

“Before I was dealing with all the challenges [of being a caregiver] alone, which creates more stress. Now, by exchanging information and experiences with other members and the two empathetic facilitators, I come away with helpful suggestions. Mostly, I’m grateful to have a place to talk, and even cry, and feel supported.” — Daniella


We empower women via conferences, seminars, webinars, and workshops. Our recent webinar “Art as Therapy” was a great success. We have also had our presentations “Breakthroughs in Breast Cancer Treatments” and “The Power of Financial Independence – COVID and Beyond”. Click here to view presentations of our past events.

“The ESL sessions with my teacher have impacted me in a very positive manner and given me the confidence that I am sounding clear. Before this class, I had not gotten any feedback from an instructor or teacher in the field and I was never sure about what I was saying. I was always uncomfortable with saying the words and was curious about the background of the word. With my CWNY teacher, she corrects me and my confidence has risen.” — Helen
