What We Do

We help vulnerable women realize their dreams!

Fashion & Compassion supports oppressed women by empowering them through skill development, goal-setting, mentoring, financial stipends, supportive community and connections to resources in order to help them grow toward a self-sustaining life of purpose.

We serve women who are overcoming vulnerable situations such as human trafficking, abuse, addiction, incarceration, generational poverty and ethnic persecution. Our clients, whom we refer to as Artisans, participate in a diverse community where they make jewelry and accessories, as well as learn work readiness skills, receive emotional support and have opportunities for spiritual growth. We serve women and families in Charlotte, NC as well as in Africa and South and Central America.

We engage with compassion and inclusivity, serving women regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation.
