The mission of Heart & Hands of East Texas, A Christian Women's Job Corps Site, is to equip women with job skills and life skills in a Christ-centered environment.
What is Heart & Hands of East Texas?
We are a Christian Women's Job Corps Site seeking to equip women with not only job readiness skills, but also through teaching the Word of God so they can become who God desires them to be. We are committed to meeting the individual learning needs of each student to empower them to gain self-confidence, set positive life goals, and find hope for the future. In addition to job skills training, a key component of our program is Bible study and personal mentoring so that women can grow spiritually.
CWJC is a nation-wide organization founded in 1994 by the Women's Missionary Union to address the needs of women living in poverty. Heart & Hands of East Texas began as CWJC Lindale, a satellite of CWJC Tyler, and became a certified site in 2016. We just completed the Fall 2020 semester and are currently engaged in our Spring 2021 semester.
What We Offer
We offer a 12-week job-readiness program with experiences and skills development designed to prepare participants to compete in the job market. Our program includes the following components:
Jobs for Life curriculum
Personal employment coaching
Although we are a job-readiness program, many of our students attend because they need a community of support, increased self-confidence, or a deeper relationship with Christ.
