Beads of Hope

 

Beads of Hope is a designer and producer of unique, handmade beaded jewelry. All of the products are designed and created by the women of Hope House, a non-profit organization that has been helping homeless, chemically dependent women since 1981. The mission of Hope House is to provide women with opportunities to pursue recovery and self-sufficiency in a healthy, supportive living environment. The Beads of Hope program is operated by staff & residents together and teaches teamwork as well as employability skills such as promptness, dependability, appropriate dress & attitude, and many other work-related skills. Participation in the program includes opportunities to learn marketing, production, quality control, sales & inventory management, website management, and shipping, as well as the craft of wire-wrapping beaded jewelry.
