CHRISTINA'S STORY

Written by Evelyn Kandris

Christina's Story | Two Good Co.

NEW SKILLS

"I heard about Two Good Co upon completing my Residential Rehab at Guthrie House; I was told there was a 7-week 'Cook & Connect' community program starting, so I took the chance and applied.

The free Cook & Connect cooking school taught me not only new skills, but eased me back into working within a group; it totally opened my eyes to new and exciting things. I kept hearing about their Work Work employment program and thought this could be an amazing opportunity for me, as I'd been out of the work world for over 20 years.

Christina's Story - The Candle Project | Two Good Co.

So, after graduating from Cook & Connect, I was asked if I'd like to come and do some work making candles for Two Good Co. Hand-pouring those candles was an amazing experience for me. It was my first step into employment for many years. I loved having the chance to be taught by an amazing scentsmith and to be able to create something so beautiful with my own hands. I started to feel a sense of belonging; a whole new sense of worth.

I'm now working in the Two Good Co kitchen and it is absolutely fabulous. It's such a privilege to work alongside fantastic chefs that are so kind and willing to take the time to teach all that they can.

NEW FAMILY

The job itself is very rewarding, too; I love being able to give a little back to a community that was once there to help me through tough times. I can't quite find words that describe exactly how it feels...'infinite gratitude' comes close, though.

Working in such a caring environment makes Two Good Co feel like a family. The Work Work program has changed my life for the better; for the first time in a very long time, I'm super excited for my future and the endless possibilities I now have in front of me."

It started out as a soup kitchen in Sydney’s Kings Cross, but seven years on Two Good Co has become a multifaceted social enterprise that not only employs women with lived experience of domestic violence and homelessness, but also creates and sells high-quality products that directly support its mission.
