Handmade by Survivors: Made Locally, Sold Nationally

Your purchase of our Handmade by Survivors products will help victims of intimate partner violence as they establish safety, heal from the physical and emotional wounds of abuse, and grow strong as survivors.

We make soaps, lip balms, bath salts, and candles. Just really wonderful things that people in society already use. But we were able to make them from a heartfelt place.” – Jewell

Making products such as lip balms, salves, and soaps has a special connection to our mission. The process provides microenterprise opportunities for survivors, while also generating resources for our organization.

Our products are Kentucky Proud — and we are so happy to be a social enterprise based in beautiful Lexington, Kentucky — but our products are being enjoyed by people across the nation.
