Charms of Hope
The high school girls at Hope Academy have started their own line of handcrafted jewelry called Charms of Hope because as one resident put it, “that’s what we’re learning here at the Home – how to have hope”.
The girls are having fun assembling jewelry or designing pieces that volunteers assemble. While the girls have the opportunity to earn their first income through this project they are also learning invaluable skills about how to expand and develop their own creativity as well as business and financial planning that they will take with them into adulthood. They’re starting out with jewelry but will soon be expanding into other creative fields.
