The members of NAWIC Orange County, Chapter #91 are committed to improving our community and raising awareness about careers in construction. We are proud to support the following organizations.
The Thomas House Family Shelter provides a safe, supportive environment and the resources necessary for homeless families with children to remain together while empowering them to become independent and self-sufficient.
Thomas House exclusively serves homeless families with children, and the parents must be willing and qualified to work. We support approximately 135-150 individuals per year. Our programs have had significant impact in the community.
NAWIC Chapter #91 is proud to maintain a room at the Women’s Transitional Living Center Inc. (WTLC).
WTLC is a non-profit, community based organization of women and men committed to seeking solutions to end domestic violence and human trafficking. Services are available to all regardless of race, gender, religion, age or national origin. WTLC provides Shelter, Supportive Services and Community Education & Advocacy, touching the lives of thousands of domestic violence survivors and their families.
Working Wardrobes has changed the lives of nearly 100,000 men, women, veterans, and young adults overcoming difficult challenges – alcohol and substance abuse, domestic violence, incarceration, homelessness, catastrophic illness, and traumatic financial loss and transitioning from military service to the civilian workforce. Our clients are referred to us from more than 60 programs throughout Southern California.
Hard Hatted Woman
HARD HATTED WOMAN is the first theatrical-length documentary film to tell the story of women who are breaking down gender barriers in the blue-collar construction trades. The film will go on to tour at festivals and have nationwide community screenings, as it builds a strong outreach campaign to support visibility, recruitment, and positive change for women in the industry. NAWIC will not only benefit from the exposure gained through this partnership, but more importantly, we will be demonstrating our commitment to supporting our tradeswomen sisters.
The Future Construction Leaders Foundation of San Diego is dedicated to providing opportunities for young men and women to investigate the many private and public construction career opportunities available. From kindergarten to college, we have hands-on, free programs that expose students to various trades and the corresponding seasoned professionals who can guide and coach them.
