Wooden It Be Lovely is a social enterprise designed to help mothers in need.

The mission of "WIBL" is to offer hope to mothers recovering from lives of poverty and/or addiction by building relationships, teaching new job skills, supporting recovery efforts,and providing a means of financial support through employment. The mothers are employed to refurbish and sell donated wooden furniture alongside church and community volunteers while their young children are cared for onsite. This transitional employment empowers mothers to move towards lives of economic stability and enhanced well being for themselves and their children.

Malia's Story

"

Wooden It Be Lovely helped my son and I when we needed it most.

 

Wooden It Be Lovely and Douglas Avenue Church supported me in so many ways. While living in a shelter, I was able to work at the ministry and save my paychecks. My son and I have received so much support from this program. The money I saved helped me get my drivers license, and I now have a car and my own apartment." -Malia
