Pathways of Hope

Pathways of Hope Sewing Work Program is a stepping-stone to help clients break out of their cycle of poverty and also endeavors to help those who are simply having a circumstantial difficult time in their lives.  Clients earn money for their families by sewing items for our business customers, while benefiting from instruction and support in our Christian environment.

·        Clients:

o       Are mentored as they work with their Volunteer Sewing Coaches

o       Attend weekly support meetings facilitated by an experienced Volunteer Counselor

o       Learn new life skills

o       Learn work ethics

 

·        Clients take beginning or advanced sewing lessons, which are offered on a one-on-one basis or in a group setting, where they can.

                   sew at our facility on a daily basis,  enjoy the company of others and receive daily devotionals and in-depth life-skill mentoring

 

·        Students create various costumes for “Business of Hope”, Dallas Vintage.  http://dallasvintageshop.com/

 

·        Students sew religious banners for “Business of Hope”, Reasons for Hope, whose products are shown at the World Market in Dallas, Texas. 

 

 

Our Pathways of Hope Program recently moved to a new facility and at present has 14 sewing machines, a Serger, new donated office and work furniture.

 

We welcome any one who would like to volunteer in this program.    

There are so many blessings……….For the Students and for You!!
