Wooden It Be Lovely, a ministry of Douglas Avenue United Methodist Church, offers hope and employment to women healing from lives of poverty, addiction, and abuse; providing transitional employment, mentoring, recovery tools, education, community networking, childcare, and a safe community. Our women are employed to refurbish and sell donated wooden furniture alongside community volunteers while their young children are cared for onsite.

This transitional employment empowers women to move towards economic stability and an enhanced wellbeing for themselves and their children. Explore how we began, our mission, and how you can help!
