What We Do

The mission of BraveWorks, formerly Fashion & Compassion, is to empower women and families overcoming trauma and injustice, bridging the gap from pain to purpose through:

1) Impactful Connections- We gather artisans into our community-then we surround and support them with mentors, partners, and resources that equip and empower them.

2) Inspired Creations- Our artisans handcraft works of art-a restorative process that teaches them skills, instills hope, and ignites their sense of purpose.

3) Economic Confidence- Artisans emerge from programs and partnerships with us as confident contributors to society and with momentum towards economic mobility.

How You Can Help:
1) Your purchases and donations go back to equipping and empowering vulnerable women locally & globally. The Shop is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm & Saturday 10:00 am- 4:00 pm. We're following CDC guidelines for a safe shopping experience. You can also choose no-contact porch pick up. Just order on our website and select Charlotte area pick up. Please visit our website:
