Christian Women’s Job Corps
Christian Women’s Job Corps seek to equip women, in a Christian context, for life and employment.
We graduated 4 women in December with Morris Hill Baptist Church providing a lovely reception. Dr. David Banks delivered the graduation speech and prayer shawls from First Baptist Chattanooga. One woman now has a full time job, one is working on her GED, and another is ready to re-enter the work force after a brief retirement.
Seven additional people graduated from a parenting class, which we now offer. Since there is no charge, these classes are meeting a real need among DCS clients.
We started new classes on February 6. We still need mentors and 2-3 new churches to provide meals. People interested in mentoring should contact Jane Everett at 706-224-2908.

We seek to empower women to become confident, motivated individuals, prepared for self-sufficient lifestyle, impacted by the love of God,and equipped to give back to the community. We are so appreciative of the strong support from our local churches, Tennessee mission funds, individuals, and volunteers. We are a nationally certified site of the CWJC, a ministry of Woman’s Missionary Union. For more information click on here.
What happens in our classes?
Each term of twelve weeks includes training segments pertaining to employment such as how to locate potential jobs, resume writing, interview skills, workplace behavior, and appropriate dress. Women are also taught life skills such as wise decision making, setting SMART goals, and creating a mental and spiritual state of hope and healing. They will be introduced to Biblical women role models and God’s promise for their lives. Participants are paired with women mentors for encouragement accountability, and assistance in setting and reaching their goals
