There are many ways your church can be involved

Some churches have chosen to support the ministry by including DCWJC in their annual budget. Some have given a “one time” gift. Your church may want to help by providing resources for material needs of clients such as bus passes, lunches or classroom supplies.

Members of your church who own businesses and would be open to hiring a participant or allowing a participant to “intern” while learning a job skill would be a great benefit to our program. Also, any professionals who could offer their time and expertise on a limited basis (medical, legal, automotive repair, etc.) could provide a much-needed service. Our desire is to set up a comprehensive network to meet the physical and spiritual needs of these women as they make the transition from being dependent to being self-sufficient.

Thanks to the DCWJC my life has been changed for the best in more ways than I expected. I learned many things about myself. I took in as much as I could and began to practice what I learned and now have a full-time job. My family appreciates the change in me and I thank DCWJC for helping me during my transition. I can’t wait to visit and help pay it forward. Thank you to all of the volunteers that make DCWJC possible!
