About this Artisan
CWJC of Rusk County Texas
Kristina came from a background of abuse and drugs. After crying out to God to save her in her early 20s, she started a new chapter in her life by joining the Christian Women’s Job Corps of Rusk County, Texas. Tutors at the CWJC helped Kristina complete her GED, allowing her to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse. The CWJC of Rusk County exists to give women like Kristina a chance to get back on her feet. Women who come to them can receive instruction in basic job skills, GED and literacy tutoring, and English-as-a-second-language courses. They also have the opportunity to earn supplemental income by working in the small jewelry and crafts business at the site. Kristina designs the colorful Fruit of the Spirit Bracelet, which was the first product CWJC has offered through WorldCrafts.
