Shelter Products


Shelter Products are 100% handmade lotion and candles made by Shelter Residents. Through Shelter Products, homeless and low-income women gain much needed training, social support, education and work experience they need to overcome those obstacles, empowering them to build a better life for themselves and their families.

The Contact Ministries Work Program is grounded in spiritual principles and shines the love of Christ.  It is a supportive workplace where women acquire the skills they need to earn an income.  Every product created by our women goes on the belief that love is the most powerful force to change their lives.

Currently the women are making beautiful hand-poured soy candles in Relax and Enjoy,  Mango-Jango and Cupcake.

Candles can be purchased for $10 (silver container) and $12 (gold container)
