If one of you tells [him], ‘Go in peace, stay warm and well fed,’ but does not provide for [his] needs, what good is that? – James 2:16


Our social enterprise, Gifts for the Journey, was launched in January 2013 as a supportive workplace where the women we serve who are on their recovery journey are employed while learning skills in manufacturing, packaging, marketing, sales and administration.  While acquiring the skills they need to earn a living wage, these employees have the opportunity to put a percentage of their earnings in a matched savings account provided by Clare Community. Gifts for the Journey products are all created by and benefit the women employed, and include hand-made soaps, lotions and candles.  Hand-made unique jewelry items are available at select retailers and at Franciscan Peacemakers’ booths at craft fairs and farmers’ markets.
