Mónica Méndez, PhD, just began her tenure as the Executive Director of Dress for Success Pittsburgh after moving from Orlando, Florida, where she was the co-Founder and CEO of the House of Mentoring and Empowerment (HOME), an organization advocating for young survivors of human trafficking. Passionate about empowering women and bringing the topic of gendered violence to the public sphere, she brings twelve years of experience in program creation and implementation, training and advocacy to her new endeavor. She has published and presented her work in both national and international forums and in front of a wide variety of audiences.
Dr. Méndez brings her experience, background and accomplishments to Dress for Success Pittsburgh to advance the economic empowerment of women.

Her goal is to make Pittsburgh a stronger, healthier community by promoting the financial and social empowerment that women need in order to break the cycle of poverty.
The mission of Dress for Success Pittsburgh is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and career development tools to help women thrive in work and life. Founded in 2005, Dress for Success Pittsburgh was established to empower women to become self-sufficient and exit poverty, while also empowering women who suffered a temporary crisis and needed the short-term support to get back into the workplace.

Our Grandfathers, mothers, sons and daughters fought valiantly for our freedom today. And while the barbecue picnics, dinners and fireworks are a great time to spend with our families, friends and loved ones...which were also free to enjoy, we must not forget how much that freedom cost us. Our brave men and women of the armed forces fought through pain, agony, blood, sweat and tears for every citizen of the United States as well as for each other so that we could experience the great joy of freedom on American soil. But there is indeed another kind of freedom we as children of God must not forget.....Our freedom in Christ. And yes it came with a heavy price tag, one that would lead our Lord and savior to the cross being spat upon, cursed at, mocked and shamed for all the world to see. Our sin nailed him there and freed us from the bondage of sin. For some of us we still find ourselves battling and struggling with the same issues of sin. May God help us to not forget what that freedom cost, and may he prick our hearts and minds to remember the great price and ultimate sacrifice of Jesus by living in the true freedom found in Him rather than staying inslaved to sin. This would be good for us to reflect and recall Christ great love for us, which shows how much we honor the price of our spirtual freedom.??
We will be discussing how important it is to focus on the goodness of the Lord when we are facing difficulties in our relations with others. We have to continue to praise our way through our circumstances and believe with the measure of faith that God has given us all, that He is working things out for our good. Instead of focusing on each other, antagonizing each other, blaming each other, resenting one another, and causing more strife in our life, we need to go to God in supplication and praise, believing that He is the restorer, the deliverer, the rock of our salvation that we stand on in the midst of our storms. We have to learn how to keep our eyes to hills from whence comes our help and know that without Jesus we are doomed to continue to create a bigger mess than we have already in our lives. Learning to operate in love means getting out of the way and allowing Jesus to fix it.
John 3:17 MSG
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to Him.

Yes, it really has - although y'all can limit the bronze gifts to old Olympic medals that nobody wants anymore - and I'll still prefer my Seahawks Super Bowl ring; What price are we prepared to pay to keep ISIS in check? Not even rejected eighth anniversary gifts; Barack Obama’s Memorial Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery contained the usual disturbing message to which we ought to have grown accustomed by now; IImperialism may have fallen out of fashion, but history shows that the only other option is the kind of chaos we see today; Why national-security Republicans lost the Patriot Act debate; On climate, science and politics were never in the same zip code; and from ISIS at Ramadi to riots at home, nothing is going right - and that's exactly what we voted for. Twice.
