Main and Maxwell in Greenwood, SC, Features Kitchen Products Made in Homeless Program

January 9, 2018

Editor’s Note: This is an article that should have been in our Jan. 2018 issue of “Carolina Arts”, but I dropped the ball during my dance with cancer in December. Unfortunately things like that happen, but we’re trying to make up for it. Help me out my sharing this with others on your social network.

Main & Maxwell in Uptown Greenwood, SC, is featuring the exhibit, “Furnishing a Future program with Greenwood Pathway House,” on view through Jan. 31, 2018. A reception will be held on Jan. 25, from 5:30-7pm.

Furnishing a Future is a wood workshop on the Parham campus of Greenwood Pathway House. There, homeless clients learn woodworking skills and learn to rehabilitate and refurbish used and damaged furniture. In addition, clients learn to design and produce handcrafted bread boards. Furnishing a Future equips clients with a new skill set, job training, and the potential for employment. The program focuses on helping the homeless by facilitating intentional, long-term relationships.

This model fosters authentic relationships that empower clients. The goal is that, while the program works with homeless people to transform furniture, they also instill skills and values that will help clients see the potential for a personal transformation as well. Completing the circle, Greenwood Pathway House then sells the renovated furniture, and bread boards directing the proceeds back into the ministry.

Main & Maxwell has partnered with Greenwood Pathway House to provide a venue for the sale of their bread boards.

Main & Maxwell is a unique gallery and retail shop offering a selection of high quality art and handcrafted pieces. It is their intent to support the Greenwood community by featuring locally and regionally produced work for sale.
