Our Philanthropy: Transition Makeovers
About WomanSage and our Transition Makeover philanthropy
WomanSage is a non-profit organization that helps active women experience a personal renaissance as they transition to new stages of life--issues that confront us all. Our philanthropy includes:
- "WomanSage Reinvent Yourself," workplace solutions for women at midlife offered in monthly workshops.
- "WomanSage Transition Makeovers," a subset of 'Reinvent Yourself,' granting a major makeover (financial coaching, life coaching, career counseling, wardrobe and appearance counseling and more) to 30 women per year who apply for the program after experiencing a trauma such as death of a spouse or child, divorce, loss of a job, etc.
- "WomanSage Cares," a very special short getaway planned each year for up to 30 caregivers which includes respite care for their loved one at home.
Two years ago, we were Orange County "Philanthropy of the Year" because of the way we help women at midlife - WomanSage Cares (which provides respite and activities/outings for 24/7 family caregivers) and Reinvent Yourself! (a program that draws more than 150 a month to meetings - older women seeking education, networking, mentoring because they need work in today's economy). We also offer 30 women a year the opportunity to participate in a Transition Makeover program that includes free career coaching, life coaching and financial coaching and which often includes caregiver education and intervention support.
WomanSage is a non-profit organization that helps caregivers and women in transition at mid-life through its philanthropies, Transition Makeovers, Re Invent Yourself and WomanSage Cares. We have helped hundreds of women 35 years and older receive a gift of respite from their caregiver role, get back on their feet and find success and confidence.
