Meet Shing - Craft Associate

In 2023 a customer came in and asked if they could drop off an application. They were looking for a part-time job in an independently owned small business. It's not every day that someone spells out their desire not support locally owned small businesses by working at one. Shing arrived just as we were looking for some additional weekend support - an avid knitter and gifted maker. When did you start making things?

They commit to relationships with chronically homeless women and transgender/non-binary people that are long-term and relevant to their...

Things We Made in 2023
