Each week, thousands of women gather at various Christian Women’s Job Corps (CWJC) sites across the country. Each of these women has a goal and desire of moving forward with their lives in a way that produces confidence and assurance for them and their families. For each of these sites, it takes the support of volunteers and financial donors to make their ministry possible. Thanks to the support from the Dove Endowment through the WMU Foundation, CWJC sites can receive funding for program development. In addition, current participants and graduates can apply for scholarships that will assist them in furthering their education, allowing them to work towards a positive, sustainable future.
Here is just a small glimpse of the impact these scholarships are having in the lives of these women:
For one CWJC graduate, the funds from the Dove Endowment have helped her attend college and, most recently, assisted her in continuing with graduate studies. Those who give to the Dove Endowment make an investment that will have a lasting impact on these women and their families.
Christian Women’s Job Corps/Christian Men’s Job Corps began in 1996 and seeks to equip women and men in a Christian context for life and employment. In 2018, 200 sites impacted the lives of nearly 7,000 men and women through the service of 8,500 volunteers. Many lives were changed as 400 of these individuals began a relationship with Jesus Christ for the first time.
If your missions passion is helping those in need find a brighter future, you can give to the Dove Endowment. Your gift will impact the life of not only one woman but her family and the generations to come.
When you give a monthly gift of at least $25, you will receive a free Find Your Missions Passion mug to remind you of the lives you have impacted with your gift.
