About Our Host

Designed For Joy Earrings Info CardDesigned 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.


Join us every 4th Friday of the month for 4th Friday Connections, a free networking event traveling to different host locations throughout Wake County!
