The mission of Women's Bean Project is to change women's lives by providing stepping stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise. Women's Bean Project employs chronically unemployed and impoverished women through transitional employment and helps them earn the job readiness, interpersonal and life skills to create a new future - for themselves, their families, our community and our economy.
My name is Amber and I am 37 years old and have many parts of a past. I was released a little over a year ago from Denver Women’s prison and sadly admit I have been a part of the prison system since the day I was born in a Louisiana penitentiary. I was surrounded as a young girl by family members who used and sold drugs.
