Women Empowering Women

Purpose

 

WOMAN (Widows and Orphans Ministry for Assistance Now) is a café, gift and thrift store.  We receive contributions of new and gently used household items and clothing to sell at reduced prices to the public.  In addition, we provide hand crafted items such as quilts, fresh baked goods, hand-made candy, sandwiches and pastas in our café.  All proceeds are used to open, run and maintain our WOMEN (Widows and Orphans Mission for Education Nexus) center.

Our WOMENs’ NEXUS center houses widowed women, orphaned children and others in need with the intent of giving them education, training, guidance counseling and support with a Biblical foundation so that they may mature into productive members of their communities.  The center’s primary goal is to teach each resident the skills necessary to become self sufficient.  Residents learn to produce their own food while living on a working farm.  Vegetables, dairy and poultry are produced for sustenance and surplus amounts are sold into the community for income through a WOMAN’s NEXUS café, gift and thrift.

Education holds a very high priority with every resident learning new skills and trades so that they are in demand as employees, capable managers or successful business owners.  Some of the areas of study include but are not limited to bookkeeping, computer technology, sales, alternative energies, mechanics, wood-working, tailoring, cooking, agriculture, electronics and advertising.  The center utilizes the latest information in technology in order to be fully wind and solar powered and completely energy efficient.

We are a faith based non-profit organization which utilizes the Bible as authority in daily living and interaction with others.
