The Provisional Project is a collaborative effort of the Junior League of El Paso’s newest members known as the Provisional Class. Its purpose is to teach the Provisional Class leadership, planning, cooperation, and voluntarism. The project must have a charitable purpose and may not be religious or political in nature.
The Junior League of El Paso, Inc. Provisional Class of 2022-2023 is hosting “The EmpowHERment Project”, a day of wellness and respite for 40 women who reside in the YWCA El Paso del Norte Region’s Sara McKnight Transitional Living Center and the Center Against Sexual & Family Violence (CASFV) rapid rehousing initiative.
The EmpowHERment Project will be hosted at the Texas Tech Dental Oral Health Clinic on Saturday, February 25, 2023 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Guests will receive dental and health screenings, career counseling, financial literacy and mental health resources. They will also have opportunities for relaxation and pampering through guided meditation, trauma-informed yoga workshops and beauty services. Each guest will be given a wellness bag with essential items, self-care tools, and additional resources.
The EmpowHERment Project aims to:
- Facilitate a comprehensive wellness day for 40 women in local transitional living centers.
- Promote physical and mental health within the local community.
- Support women in creating transformational change in their lives (and across generations) through wellness.
- Work collaboratively with community partners on a project within the JLEP focus of mental and physical health.
