Christian Women’s Job Corps of McLennan County (CWJC) is TFNB’s latest Charity Champion of the 2017 season. CWJC is a nonprofit that fosters spiritual, personal, and professional growth enabling women to transform their families and their communities.
CWJC offers spiritual, personal and professional growth through its GED, computer skills training, career track programs, and jail ministry.
The nonprofit needs help from supporters both monetary and volunteer time. More computers are needed to serve the GED, computer training, and career track programs. CWJC also needs tutors in every discipline. The nonprofit needs women willing who are willing to serve as prayer partners and mentors.
In her Charity Champion nomination, CWJC supporter and volunteer T.K. Childress wrote:
CWJC is doing an amazing work with women in and around our community to teach them and provide tools to help them find jobs after coming from very difficult situations. Many have been incarcerated, abused physically and mentally, addicts, or just women who have not worked due to raising their families. To hear their stories of how they are nurtured, mentored, and helped to “get back on their feet” is amazing.
Along with the on-field presentation at the W. Virginia vs. Baylor game on October 21, 2017, TFNB will fund a marketing campaign to raise awareness about Christian Women’s Job Corps and also pay for staff training and leadership development provided by 360 Solutions.
“CWJC is honored to be selected a Charity Champion,” said Suzanne Hack, executive director. “We are excited to increase awareness of our GED, Computer Training, and Career Track Programs in order to continue to support women as they strive to transform their communities.”
Women who are alumni of the CWJC program work in various fields such as office assistants, retail sales, medical, legal, mortuary, food service, call centers, apartment leasing, dog grooming, home health care, highway construction, warehouse, and cleaning services.
