Organizational History/Introduction

Founded in 1995 to address critical barriers to finding and retaining employment, WFO started as a micro-project to help underserved women secure jobs. Since its start over 20 years ago, WFO has served nearly 30,000 low-income individuals. WFO’s model expanded from a tiny startup to a thriving organization with over 40 partner relationships that include social service and job-training agencies across the Bay Area. Within 10 years, the organization expanded its focus beyond women to include all adults and a significant number of youth as well.
