Provide Safe, Dignified Work in 2021

by Designed For Joy

To date we have hired over 40 women and given $100,000 in living wages. Even in 2020, we increased payroll by 15% over the last year. Your incredible support got us through a difficult year and we are hopefilled for 2021. We continue to hire and we have increased our wages to $15 an hour, giving a living wage to women who need sustainable help as they overcome trafficking, homelessness and other vulnerable situations. 

Thank you for a one time gift or for considering becoming a monthly giver. We need your support to continue providing safe, dignified work to our community's most vulnerable women.
