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.
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 began as a single level 10 week life/job skills program.
The program now includes:
- Life and job skills taught in the CWJC center, other non-profits, and the McLennan County jail.
- GED preparation classes (Day and Evening)
An average of 100 women participate in the program annually.
Many CWJC graduates are employed and/or continuing their education.
Recidivism rate of CWJC jail graduates is less than 20%.
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 impact their families, affecting future generations.
CWJC collaborates with many churches, businesses and organizations to effectively meet the needs of our participants and our community.
