It is with great sadness that Everywoman Opportunity Center announces that we have ceased program operations. Severe funding cuts in recent years have left us unable to maintain the high quality of services that we have provided to Western New York women in transition since 1977. Everywoman’s staff, board and volunteers are proud of the work we have done and the legacy that we leave in the community. We recommend that job seekers contact the New York State One Stop Career Center in their area for job search assistance.

Everywoman Opportunity Center, Inc. was incorporated in 1977 as a private not-for-profit corporation to help women achieve economic and personal self-sufficiency, and has been a regional employment service provider for over 30 years.Throughout its history, Everywoman has reached out to diverse communities to provide comprehensive employment-related services. Everywoman serves primarily women from a variety of economic backgrounds, including displaced homemakers, older women, single heads of households and public assistance beneficiaries.

Until 2013, Everywoman administered the largest Displaced Homemaker Program in the United States. Piloted in 1977, our program has been replicated across the country and is the model for 22 centers in New York State.Since 1978, one-third of the individuals served in the Displaced Homemaker Program have been welfare recipients – many of whom are now working in unsubsidized jobs. But numbers tell a tiny part of Everywoman's story. Numbers do not speak to the changes that became possible in individual lives because a caring agency represented by a mission-driven staff believed in the women.
