Attending DCWJC was a phenomenal experience. I woke up looking forward to the clean, positive Christian fun-loving environment where I came to learn to be productive in life. I also appreciate the caring team of instructors who equipped us with positive life skills. DCWJC was a life-changing experience. Now I can honestly say I am an overcomer!
For the past 18 years, the mission of Dallas Christian Women’s Job Corps (DCWJC) is to offer a supportive environment in which women in need are equipped for life and employment, while providing a context in which women help women.
“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.”—Jeremiah 29:11
Don’t Let Circumstances Overshadow Your Hope!
Change and crisis can occur without warning—job loss, addictions, broken relationships, disability or illness. For others, it’s not a change, but a way of life that has been handed down through generations. Dallas Christian Women’s Job Corps exists to empower women to experience spiritual, personal, and professional success. We give you an place—free of charge—to experience long lasting relationships while developing your job skills and life skills. We do this within a Christian context, although we accept women of all beliefs.

The primary objectives of the Job Readiness and Life Skills Program are to assist women to become self-sufficient and independent through teaching “hard” skills” (computer training, resume preparation, money management/budgeting, interview skills, etc.), and “soft” skills ( Bible study, healthy relationships/boundaries, character development, health and nutrition, personal safety/family violence, parenting skills, time management, etc.), in conjunction with the help and support of a mentor, to holistically move the woman forward toward self-sufficiency.
This Program is offered three times a year—Fall, Winter and Spring—and serves approximately 15 women per class. The class is taught 100-percent by volunteers, with support from two paid staff.
