Christian Women's Job Corp
Established in 1997, CWJC creates the potential for transformation of body, mind, heart, and spirit in the working poor and the Christian community. It does this by equipping individuals with life and employment skills, in an environment where volunteers serve as teachers, tutors, mentors and childcare providers. Each student is equipped with the basic life skills necessary for self-sufficiency, including GED or ESL, employment, etc. The grant requested in this application will be used to fund mental health case management and mentoring at four sites for 105 or more students. 58 out of 85 (68%) will increase (improve) or maintain their Self-Sufficiency Assessment score retested annually. For those in poverty or low wage, maintaining a score is considered successful. 68 out of 105 (65%) students will decrease or maintain their score on the Burns Depression Inventory which is tested every six months. For those in poverty or low wage, maintaining a score is considered successful. 79 out of 105 (75%) will demonstrate measurable steps toward their Personal Goal Plan. Setting a goal and working toward it improves mental and physical health and will lead to graduation, job opportunities and freedom from poverty.
