Since 2018, the Rasa Family Centre has been a home for women in crisis situations. It quickly became apparent that providing jobs for the women in our care was a critical part of their reintegration into society. 

Our desire to provide employment for these women began with a used clothing store - New Start Boutique - supported by Ny Start Norway.

Our latest venture is opening a takeout restaurant - "Papa Rei - Pizza & Hotdogs". It provides additional training, mentoring, and employment for the women sheltering in the Rasa Family Centre. It also serves the best hot dogs and pizza in the area!

Local employment allows a mother to stay with her family instead of abandoning her children to travel to other countries in search of work. Once she graduates out of the Center, she will be able to live independently and have the confidence needed to support her family.  

Every day on the job brings opportunities to share the Gospel and teach and mentor women in godly living. Providing employment has opened up a whole new dimension to our ministry here in Romania that will have an impact for generations.
