A Day in the Life...
Feed Me Hope Bakery is an option available to guests of the women's shelter interested in acquiring marketable job skills.
Students learn everything from basic safety and sanitation guidelines to intricate piping techniques. They gain experience catering some of the events and fundraisers for the DHC, as well as fill daily orders. Already, we have seen remarkable transformation in our students as they begin to believe in their future.
"A HAND UP AND OUT OF HOMELESSNESS"
Women from the shelter are able to work in the bakery during the day with Baker/Chefs Tom Christensen, Greg Ridgway, and Daja Scroggs. In the morning they have priority access to the showers and clean clothes. From there, they attend a Life Skills class led by coach Richard Irwin. In the afternoon, they begin baking and taking orders. When they are finished for the day, they are able to relax in the DHC's Shower House until dinnertime and Shelter hours begin.
