The Career & Life Transitions Center for Women

“The help I received with rewording and restructuring my résumé made me feel more confident about sending out my resume. ”
Joan Braunswiger

The Career & Life Transitions Center for Women, sponsored by NORWESCAP, has been serving displaced homemakers in Warren, Hunterdon Somerset & Mercer Counties for 30 years.  Displaced Homemakers are women who have lost their primary means of financial support after the death or disability of a spouse, or due to a divorce or separation and must return to the workforce.  Displaced Homemakers have traditionally been out of the job market for a significant period of time, lack marketable skills and are now faced with supporting both themselves and their family.  The mission of the Career & Life Transitions Center is to provide quality services that will assist women gain personal and economic self-sufficiency and reach their full potential through education, training, job readiness, community referrals and supportive services.  Services the Transitions Center offers include computer training, career interest inventories, vocational counseling, job search skills, support groups, life skills workshops, and referrals to community resources.    The program has offices located in Washington and in Flemington.

The situation faced by displaced homemakers has been of special significance to the JG Petrucci Foundation for many years.  In 2004 they launched the first of ten annual Crossing Borders Award Luncheons.  The money raised assisted displaced homemaker programs throughout NJ provide women with the opportunity to succeed both in the workplace and in the home as single mothers.  The JG Petrucci Family Foundation stands behind the mission of NORWESCAP’s Career & Life Transitions Center to provide women with educational opportunities, the skills necessary to obtain and retain employment and the supportive services necessary for them to achieve their personal and professional goals. Their sponsorship over the past several years clearly demonstrates their commitment and support to help women who have been out of the job market for a significant period of time, lack marketable skills and are now faced with supporting both themselves and their family.
