“‘For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate”
— Luke 15:24
Prodigal Pottery’s mission is to provide a safe and therapeutic work environment for women in need that develops healthy professional skills, interpersonal relationships and spiritual depth. We transform the lives of at-risk women by providing them with meaningful employment, while equipping our staff with the entrepreneurial skills needed to succeed.
It all started when…
Prodigal Pottery started from the dream to create jobs for women fleeing homelessness and domestic abuse in a safe and therapeutic environment.
King’s Home is home and safe haven to over 50 women who are seeking hope and restoration from pasts riddled with abuse and homelessness. When King’s Home was donated an industrial kiln and pottery supplies, the dream to create jobs for the women of King’s Home became a reality. Since Prodigal Pottery started in 2014, the women, many who are working on their GED’s, grow in their basic job skills. As they have learned how to roll clay, “love” any imperfections, paint, tag and inventory pottery, they are also creatively solving problems and developing relationships in the workplace.
The bonds that have formed within the Prodigal Pottery studio go deeper than just professional relationships. The multiple full time and part time staff consider the Prodigal Pottery studio their “happy place” where they can work through the difficult things happening in their lives, while still holding down a steady and rewarding job. Your support of Prodigal Pottery goes far beyond purchasing a piece of pottery . . . lives are being changed through the work happening at Kings Home, and we are so grateful for your support.
