Our Mission

The mission of Restoration Women CWJC Athens is to equip women of Athens, GA and the surrounding area with life and job skills to empower them to walk in freedom and bring restoration to their homes and community.

Yahweh will always guide you where to go and what to do.  He will fill you with refreshment even when you are in a dry, difficult place.  He will continually restore strength to you, so you will flourish like a well-watered garden and like an ever-flowing, trustworthy spring of blessing. Your people will rebuild long-deserted ruins,  building anew on foundations laid long before you. You will be known as Repairers of the Cities  and Restorers of Communities. 
Isaiah 58:11-12
