Women Helping Women is a growing cooperative of Good Shepherd’s Women’s group and vendors and craftswomen in our neighborhood. Once a year, we host a craft and vendor fair that supports a shelter in our community that works with women in transition–domestic violence shelters, homeless ministries, or rehab centers. This year, our craft show will support the Washington City Mission. Our mission is to use our gifts to God’s grace and to empower other women to use theirs.
We are developing a cooperative of crafters and vendors in the South Hills who together explore what it means to practice faith while pursuing business and art. (Note: most of our crafter/vendors are community members and do not necessarily belong to Good Shepherd!). Though some of our vendors have gained new client relationships, the focus of our planning team is to find ways that lift up our God-given human dignity. We use our crafting and business and church-related skills because all people need and want their gifts and talents to be affirmed. We work together because greater health is found in connection and community.
