House of Bread is a program for women coming out of incarceration
Through friendship we share tools to help them begin anew—tools for restoring confidence, dignity and hope. Over the course of an eight-week session women are exposed to new skills through supportive relationships, hands on training, and spiritual development while baking and selling bread alongside volunteers from the community. In addition to learning basic kitchen and baking skills, the women in the program receive ServSafe food handler training, develop marketing and customer service skills, and partner one-on-one with volunteers who shepherd them through a job search and resume building process. Each session culminates with the ServSafe certification exam and a mock interview clinic.
