A sponsored program by Colorado Mountain College that provides a space for learning, growing, and making meaningful connections on the path to self-sufficiency.

We support our communities by supporting one another --

one person, one family, one stitch at a time.

The Program

Our students come from many different backgrounds and experiences. Within a few weeks, you learn many different life and job skills including time management, using an industrial machine, creating patterns, self-awareness and self- esteem, and seeing a project from start to finish. We create reusable bags from recycled and repurposed fabrics -- finding new and exciting ways to look at things.

As a sponsored program through Colorado Mountain College, we have our roots planted in higher education. We teach trade skills and how to work on personal goals, as well as help with any transitions into educational programs. We are a part of GarCo Enterprise, a program that helps prepare you for life, school, and work. We are just a part of the larger community that works together to make sure you have the chance to "show 'em what you've got."

We focus on empowering our communities by helping individuals. We meet each student knowing that different experiences create different people -- however, we all come together knowing that we're here for the greater good. We work on making things great while we have the chance.
