Service Week in Raleigh with Designed For Joy's Partners, July 10-14, 2023


We are pausing our service week at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

Join us for a Summer Serve Week! 

Our mission at Designed For Joy is to provide women in crisis with stability through immediate employment and support, removing the stigma of vulnerability. Our work is made possible by our amazing staff and volunteers, as well as our faithful referring partners & community partners.

We are initiating a Summer Serve Week July 10-14 to give back to these organizations who give so much to us and to our local community. 
Think of this like a local mission trip - beginning with a church service at Southeast Raleigh Table on Sunday, followed by service days Monday through Thursday with a variety of morning and afternoon projects with our partners, and we'll finish the week with a celebratory lunch at the studio on Friday. 
Whether you can join us for one or two projects, or you're able to be with us for the full week, we'd love to have you!

Details are coming in as we are working with our referring partners to see how we can support them that week. Please fill out the interest form below and we'll be in touch with more details.

Women and men are invited to join us. Participants should be 18 or older. Background checks may be required by partner organizations.
