Melissa Ice & Sarah Bowden

Melissa and Sarah, founders of The Worthy Co, have recently opened their new Southside HQ! Here they not only serve and employ female survivors of trafficking, but also sell handmade jewelry, clothing, home goods and hand poured candles that are made by these survivors and female-owned businesses.

After remodeling an old, historic treasure of a building, these women created Fort Worth’s first non-profit retail store where 100% of every purchase employs and empowers survivors of trafficking in our city. These women needed a safe environment where they can work with trauma-informed volunteers, gain professional experience, and earn income as they develop the skills needed to enter back into the workforce. By opening The Worthy Co retail space, women learn product manufacturing, inventory and fulfillment, and retail management. 

Congratulations ladies and thank you for being visionaries in Fort Worth!
