Women: Job Skills Help.
Heart and Hands Lindale (formerly Christian Women’s Job Corp) - Heart and Hands Lindale equips women with not only job readiness skills, but also through teaching the Word of God so they can become who God desires them to be. We are committed to meeting the individual learning needs of each student to empower them to gain self-confidence, set positive life goals, and find hope for the future. In addition to job skills training, a key component of our program is Bible study and personal mentoring so that women can grow spiritually.
