“Experiencing the work that God is doing in the lives of women: teaching them to recognize and use their talents and skills, utilizing those skills in a job that allows them to earn a living wage, and growing their self-confidence is fulfilling and satisfying. We support and nurture each woman and provide an environment for learning, growth and transformation for the entire family.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.”
