By offering free on-site child care, part-time hours, and a work location easily accessible by public transportation, we are removing barriers to work. The supportive environment promotes the development of job, life, parenting, and relationship skills. Choosing to engage in the weekly Bible Study provides an opportunity to get to know God and what it means to be His daughter and assists in applying biblical truth to the challenges of everyday life and the suffering the women have experienced. Friendships are built, awareness of resources grows, support systems are enlarged, and information is gained. There is now work history for job applications and a reference available. This aids the women in transitioning into jobs that offer longer hours and higher pay so that they can support their families with less reliance on government assistance.
