Divine Threads is dedicated to serving disadvantaged and traumatized women in the Portland Metro area. We seek to honor their true identity and provide a safe & supportive community. We meet women in their crisis, providing capsule wardrobes, and training in life skills with programs to help in hope and healing from trauma. Divine Threads exists to inspire & encourage each woman and empower them to integrate their trauma in the present and for the future.
At Divine Threads, we are driven by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Every member of our volunteer team has experienced firsthand the love and grace offered by the gospel, and we hope to impart that same feeling to the women who walk through our doors. So far, we have been able to bring confidence and joy to over 230 women, providing them with over 5,500 pieces of clothing.
Divine Threads is a faith-based organization, specializing in serving women weathering any circumstance by providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through clothing, employment assistance, and healing community.
We are a referral-based non-profit, working with other agencies and ministries in the Portland Metro area, to offer a holistic approach to assisting women. As our referring agencies identify needs that we can fill, their clients are referred to us. If you are a woman needing our services, please see the list of referral agencies provided on our Services page.
We hope to share with every woman who walks through our doors that she is loved, is beautiful and is created in God’s image. Our team of volunteers is here to provide support and professional fashion, hair, makeup, styling, and tailoring services to every woman who comes to Divine Threads.
At Divine Threads, our goal is to serve any woman hoping for a fresh start, including those escaping domestic abuse or homelessness, victims of sex trafficking, women re-entering the workforce, single mothers, those recently released from prison, and more. We hope to provide each client with the clothes, personal care products, and support she needs to succeed as she continues her journey.
After eight years of operating out our beloved farmhouse, we found ourselves bursting at the seams and needing more space. Through a series of events, we were able to acquire a house just steps away from the farmhouse with almost double the square footage! Our boutique has allowed us to dream even bigger, with the ability and space to offer more programs to our clients. A large kitchen with brand new appliances allows us to offer nutrition and cooking classes. There is now room to host a dozen women for our Tech Literacy Program. We now have five large rooms dedicated to clothing, shoes and accessories – and thanks to all who donate clothing, those rooms are filling up fast – which is a wonderful thing! Our makeover area offers three dressing rooms with light up mirrors. And we have a makeup station and a hair station with a salon sink. Each client who walks through the doors of our boutique immediately feels cared for and loved when she is told that the boutique has been created with her in mind.
