2000 Roses/Rose Garden ReMake

Founded in 1999 by two Dallas entrepreneurs, 2000 Roses aims to help women, particularly those recovering from domestic violence or substance abuse, make the transition from incarceration back into the community.  To do so, the nonprofit provides transitional living centers, information, education, and a range of services, and has served about 1,200 women since its inception.  A key part of its program is Rose Garden ReMake, a boutique that sells products crafted by locals (ranging from home décor to artwork to clothing) as well as products handcrafted by the nonprofit’s clients.  Clients not only are taught how to make candles, jewelry and other crafts, but can also work in the boutique to gain entrepreneurial skills and retail experience.
