What We Do

Fashion & Compassion supports vulnerable and oppressed women by providing transitional employment, supportive community and connections to individualized resources in order to empower women who are charting a courageous path toward a self-sustaining life of purpose.

Our Artisans participate in a diverse community where they make jewelry as well as learn work readiness skills, receive emotional support and have opportunities for spiritual growth. We serve women who are overcoming vulnerable situations such as human trafficking, addiction, incarceration, and abuse, as well as refugees and immigrants who have been displaced.

We engage with compassion and serve our artisans regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation.
