Just as we have a goal of moving the women we serve towards economic self-sufficiency we have set the same goals for ourselves. Our major supported employment opportunity is a market stand from which we sell produce that the women we work with grow on the farm and baked goods that we make in the farmhouse kitchen.


Our vision of building a permanent market stand was realized in 2014!



A permanent market stand has dramatically increased our sales capacity and the comfort of our clients and volunteers who we serve and depend on. As we develop our work sites and job training programs we will be in a position to create jobs for some of the women we serve. At the same time, these worksites will generate an income to fund the operating expenses of our transitional housing programs.
