Network of Executive Women – Outreach Program

NEW selects 1 or 2 charities a year to support.  It is a critical aspect of our organization that we give back to the community.  Our members vote.  We support these charities in many ways including the following: 

· A rollout at our Holiday luncheon.  The Executive Directors from the charities are our only speakers at the luncheon and are able to educate our members and guest about their charities, their needs and what they do for our community.

Dress for Success Tampa Bay

The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

 Dress for Success does this by offering the following programs: 

Suiting - On her initial visit a woman receives a suit appropriate for the industry in which she is interviewing and, if available, accessories. After a woman finds a job she returns for additional clothing that can be mixed and matched to make several outfits, providing her with the foundation for a professional wardrobe.

  • Employment Retention through Professional Women’s Group (PWG)
  • Having secured employment—women in these programs focus on retaining their jobs and developing their professional skills.
  • Job Training – Going Places Network - Through the tools and resources they receive, participants are empowered to continue and succeed in their job searches.

Miracles Outreach

Miracles Outreach has provided foster care and other services to more than 400 youth in Florida since 2000. They focus on children who are homeless, have been abused or were victims of Human Trafficking between the ages of twelve and seventeen. They provide a caring, nurturing, and safe home to children that come to them from child welfare agencies throughout Florida and often arrive severely troubled because of the situations that caused them to enter foster care.
