Empowering

After a couple of co-op placements that were not a good match, Trisha, a Centennial High School student, found a home at Redeemed Goods. Because of some special needs, she had trouble remaining at her other placements. But we saw her as an image bearer of God and wanted to empower her.

She was with us from January to June. Her main duties were store maintenance and clothing display. It took some time but we saw her develop from someone who was quiet and afraid to someone who was talkative, poised and sure of her value.  At the end of her placement Trisha said, “Before doing my co-op with Redeemed Goods, I would have never have spoken to a stranger because I didn’t feel like I was important enough. Now, I am able to help customers with confidence.”
