Our Story


Dégagé Ministries is a community center that assists homeless and disadvantaged individuals through responsive programming. Its social enterprise operation, Pauls’ Moms’ Cookies, is an exciting (and delicious!) venture that benefits Dégagé’s Open Door Women’s Center, a safe haven offering shelter during the overnight hours for women in crisis.

In addition to the proceeds supporting the ministry, this retail cookie business provides a vital career opportunity for our former Open Door patrons. They work alongside staff, volunteers, and the founders of Pauls’ Moms’ Cookies, all while earning an income, gaining valuable job skills, and building relationships.
