JVS Trade Secrets

Through individualized coaching, counseling and placement services, JVS helps women re-enter the workforce after significant life-changing events, such as financial need due to family job loss, divorce, or the death or disability of a spouse or partner. Over 450 people attended the JVS Trade Secrets fundraising dinner which was held at the Marriott in Troy. Luisa Harrington was honored with the 2019 Women to Work Award. The event was co-chaired by Roz Blanck, Kristen Gross and Linda Wagner. The evening raised $240,000 for the JVS Women to Work Program and other services that support women job seekers.
