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.

How We Are Impacted:
We want to do our part to manage social gatherings and keep sharing space to a minimum. We are also a small local business, who may lose revenue due to being closed.

How You Can Help:
1) Your purchases and donations go back to equipping and empowering vulnerable women locally & globally. The Boutique 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: www.fashionandcompassion.com

2) Follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

3) Provide lunch for our Wednesday Artisans (details in the volunteer section below)

4) Write notes of encouragement to our artisans (details in the volunteer section below)

5) Donate via our Amazon Wishlist for direct Artisan support
