About CWJC

Christian Women’s Job Corps (CWJC) was founded by the National Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) in Birmingham, AL. in 1995 as a means of identifying, training and mentoring women trapped in poverty, abuse, and alienation.


More than 160 CWJC sites across America (including 4 international sites) provide job skills, social skills, and help build self-worth in women needing a second chance. National CWJC was represented on former Vice President Gore’s welfare-to-work national task force. Locally, CWJC’s training program is enhanced by women who serve as mentors, and commit to a one-on-one relationship with a participant until she reaches a level of independence and acceptance in the job marketplace.

One of the unique offerings in CWJC’s training and mentoring program is the inclusion of Bible study. The Bible study curriculum is presented in a way that focuses on God’s love for each woman, no matter their background or life circumstances.

CWJC of Greater Arlington, while associated with the National CWJC, is a separate 501-(c)(3) non-profit organization chartered in the State of Texas and has its own Executive Director and Board of Directors. The integrated curriculum of CWJC equips the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. It’s little wonder that miraculous stories emanate from the women who have been directly touched by CWJC and those who selflessly serve the cause. Find your place in CWJC today!


Dear CWJC Friends,

It goes without saying, we are walking through an unprecedented time. We are all being challenged and are working to navigate through this unfamiliar set of circumstances.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us all to rethink how to live well, and how to selflessly serve our family, friends, neighbors, and those in our community.

Christian Women’s Job Corps of Greater Arlington (CWJC) continues to be what we view, as an essential organization.  While our method of delivery will be temporarily changed, as we move to virtual instruction, CWJC will continue to provide excellent job skills training and Bible study to women in Tarrant County.

We certainly appreciate your interest in and support of CWJC of Greater Arlington.
