Baskets of Hope, our annual fundraiser is a fun evening which includes a meal and beautiful themed baskets donated by businesses and groups. It is a great time to visit with friends and do some shopping.
Thanks to all who attended 2016 Baskets of Hope
Here’s a peek at who was there.
This annual fundraising event benefits the mission and ministry of Christian Women’s Job Corps. Sponsors and donors have helped make a difference in women’s lives.
- Our program has grown from a single level 10 week life/job skills program to:
- Job Training — 12 week program bi-annually — day and night classes.
- McLennan County Jail — Classes taught twice a week to educate and build relationships with women that continue in our center after they are released.
- An average of 100 women participate in the program annually.
- Over 65% of CWJC graduates are working and/or furthering their education.
- Recidivism rate of CWJC jail graduates is less than 10%.
- CWJC is a volunteer driven ministry with only 3 full time staff members and 1 part-time bookkeeper. Thousands of volunteer hours are contributed annually.
- Our program equips our graduates to become contributing members of our community and to positively affect their families.
- CWJC collaborates with many churches, businesses and organizations to effectively meet the needs of our participants.
