Christian Women's Job Corps of Lindale in its second year of operation. Our first class was held in the spring of 2017. During 2017, we graduated 12 students. We are now in our fifth session. The need in Lindale is great. Most of those who benefit from our organization do not have the means to travel to Tyler to obtain the skills they need to make better lives for themselves and their families. We lead them through the process of determining what their skills might be, what their career goals are, and then help them formulate a plan to reach those goals through computer training, job skills training, and spiritual development. In addition to job and life skills classes, we partner with the Literacy Council of Tyler and the Lillie Russell Memorial Library to provide GED classes for the Lindale area. We also partner with Living Alternatives and Hope Haven to provide much needed services to the women who are part of their ministries.

We currently meet at First United Methodist Church in Lindale. However, we are "dreaming big"! Our dream is to have our own building we can call our own. To do that, many things have to fall into place. Funding is always a huge concern for any non-profit. We keep our expenses at a minimum, so that we can save for the future. We have formed a budget that we feel gives us room to grow, but yet is reachable and achievable.

Would you be a part of this dream? Every donation is one step closer to giving a woman a hand up - not a hand out.
