If all Women Had Hope?

A Ministry of Douglas Avenue United Methodist Church

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

Wooden It Be Lovely’s mission is to offer hope, empower and employ women healing from lives of poverty, addiction, and abuse. We do this by providing transitional employment, mentoring, recovery tools, childcare, and community. 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 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
