In 2020, we continued to hire Raleigh's most vulnerable women and increased payroll over 2019 even after being closed 7 weeks due to Covid lockdown. 

But, to keep up with great need for safe, dignified jobs for women in Raleigh emerging from sex trafficking, homelessness, substance use, and other tough situations, 

we urgently need more space.

We are narrowing down options for a new home for DFJ Downtown Raleigh and in that process are preparing for the future financial investment. 


Your generosity in our first month fundraising has us nearly halfway to our $100,000 building fund goal!


We are humbled and so hopeful for a new home for DFJ to provide more space to employ more women.

We invite you to be a part of this milestone year. Give here and grow with us in 2021.

Checks can be written to Designed For Joy and mailed to 2409-117 Crabtree Blvd., Raleigh, N.C. 27604.

*Funds raised will contribute to the financial requirements of moving into bigger production space, wages for artisans both employees as artisans and those who come for day-work, upfitting, and the ongoing mission of Designed For Joy.
