Dakotah and Nicole lead our Inspired Creations businesses that create handmade gifts.
Our residents enjoy the creativity and camaraderie of making these beautiful gifts. The work also provides skill development and mentoring opportunities.
Host an Inspired Creations private candle party at our Inspiration Center, your home, or church/office. Hear a testimony from our residents and learn how God is at work through One Eighty while you hold and smell our products for yourself. It’s good-smelling fun with a purpose.
Perfect gifts for holidays, birthdays, thank you’s, housewarming, teachers, or just because.
Candles are made from a coconut-paraffin blend and feature a crackling wood wick. They come in a variety of sizes and scents.
Salted caramels are individually wrapped and beautifully packaged.
Each Inspired Creation comes with a “story card’ from one of our residents – showing how your purchase is changing lives.
“While we make caramels, we crank up the worship music and talk. The laid back, easy environment allows God to flow through the women and get them talk more freely. I get to see them in a different environment and in a different light than when they are at the Women’s Home.”
“Candles is about more than the product itself – it’s about the relationships our women get to build as they create things together. And also the relationships they build with customers through candle parties or selling them at fundraisers. Many haven’t had healthy relationships before and it’s a chance for them to learn what that looks like.”

“We love supporting local, small business, because we own a small business. So, tasting the caramels was a must. My husband’s words after eating an entire bag, ‘We don’t need to tell mom that these are better than hers!’” - Michele Beck
“I’m a huge fan. These are my ‘go to’ gift for friends, family, teachers and colleagues. The caramels are the most delicious you will ever taste, and the handmade candles come in a variety of divine scents. I love to purchase high quality, handmade, local products even more so when it also supports women overcoming addiction, crisis and poverty.”
