“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.” - Anne Frank


Belle and Sparrows, a McKinney based non-profit that serves marginalized and under-resourced women is trying to defy darkness by lighting the way with its social enterprise program, The Stella Projects Candles for Change. Launched in October of 2020, these survivor made candles are hand-poured by women rebuilding their lives. The philosophy behind The Stella Projects- Candles for Change is dual purposed; when supplemental income is provided through candle making and job skills training is provided, change can happen. Our customers are not only getting a beautiful candle but also making an investment in a woman's future.

For many of the women Belle and Sparrows serves, second (or third) chances are essential for women to succeed. Suffering traumatic backgrounds of incarceration, abuse, drugs and trafficking many of these women are left hopeless and without opportunity. By eliminating barriers, Belle and Sparrows, provides hope, meaningful employment, and restores dignity to women so they can be on their journey towards financial independence.

To date, two women are currently employed, earning supplemental income and making candles with over 600 candles have been sold since the launch in October. As more and more candles sell, Belle and Sparrows will be able continue to light the way and employ more women.

In March of 2017, a new by women for women non-profit hit the scene.  Belle and Sparrows is an all women mission organization based in Collin County that takes groups to serve other women both locally and abroad. If you are a woman who has ever felt unworthy, marginalized or struggled with life's hardships; you know the importance of having someone come alongside to encourage and support you through that season. We want all women to know they are worthy and share with them that they are Beautiful. Not Forgotten.

With almost three decades of ministry experience between co-founders Lynde Griggs and Tiffany Savage, missions is something we take seriously and do passionately. Belle and Sparrows offers many opportunities to get involved from cooking and serving a meal in a Dallas domestic violence shelter to empowering women in a remote Haitian village with skills training that can help add to her daily income. Trips vary anywhere from a 3 hour day trip to 10 days abroad to give women varied options for serving other women.

We would love for you to join one of our trips.
