SPRING COLLECTION Grow: Seen + Unseen

This bright and colorful collection represents the hope we carry into the future after walking through the pain of the past. Often when we feel buried, we discover we have actually been planted. The botanical-themed colors and pieces remind us we are always growing, even in the darkness. From the homes of resettled refugees across the ocean to Kenya and every home in-between, this collection represents being rooted, established, and blooming in the most difficult of circumstances. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:18

ARTISAN DETAILS: Rehema House 

In January 2017, Mercy House was able to begin the funding for a Transition Home, that provides a bridge back into society for Rehema House residents who cannot return home yet. Rehema works to give the moms and their babies a safe place to live while they transition into vocational, secondary school, and employment nearby, and their children are taken care of by the live-in housemother until they begin school.

In this environment, the teen mothers are given a little more freedom to care for their children by shopping in the nearby markets for them, preparing meals, managing money from the small jobs they do at home that might include creating jewelry, sewing projects, painting, etc to make fair trade product. The average stay will be 18 months.

The Rehema Transition home currently houses 12 of our teen moms and their children along with a housemother at a beautiful rented private compound that is secure. The budget for the home, staff member, food, water, etc is approximately $3000 a month, half of which is raised by private donations and the other half by our newest subscription club, The Grace Case.
