One of the most challenging issues for our girls is getting them into adequate employment. Roughly 70% of clients arrive with no GED or high school diploma. They frequently have little or no job experience and do not qualify for job which can pay a “living wage”.
The types of jobs available to our clients are typically fast food, gas stations, or dollar stores. Low wage, low skills, and low opportunity for advancement.
By purchasing our products (body butter, soap, lotion, and more), you are directly teaching a young mom important job skills like time management, budgeting, customer service, product fulfillment and shipping, basic accounting, inventory management, and so much more!
She is also learning to take pride in her work. When she sees people are interested in her products – when they are bought and shipped – it builds a sense of accomplishment and self-worth that is unbelievable.
