About Our Host
Designed For Joy provides women in crisis with stability through immediate employment and support, removing the stigma of vulnerability. We envision a community where every woman has the opportunity to earn a living wage through safe and dignified work.
The women who create our brand with us are those living at high risk for sex and labor trafficking and/or food and housing insecurities. We partner with long-running ministries or local NGOs serving women that may be coming out of trafficking, emergency situations, generational poverty, homelessness, rehab, or prison. We believe in a community approach. In this a holistic care approach we take the vocational resource component while our professional partners do what they do best.
