Churches often focus their benevolence work on handing out food, clothes, rent money. But what if instead they focused on providing those seeking help the ability to help themselves? What if churches helped the poor gain job skills and training?
We're big fans of the work done by Jobs for Life in this regard, and the mission of Make Welcome was born out of the same vision. We want to provide work and skills training so that refugee women are empowered to take care of their families.
