Stories That Inspire


We are Women’s Bean Project

The stories we most want to tell are those of the women – women who, against all odds, have turned their lives around. Too often, the women who come to the Bean Project buy into the notion that society puts in front of them; that they aren’t good enough to be hired by an employer who will care about them, to earn enough money to finally move off of assistance, to have a life they and their children can be proud of. The women of the Bean Project have taken what life has presented to them, some of it their own making, much of it not, and created a mess that they are working to correct. We hope that by sharing their stories of struggle, survival and, sometimes, triumph, we will give these women a voice.
