We empower women.

Our mission at Soup Of Success is to empower women through education and resources to build self-esteem, develop independence and improve quality of life. We work with women, right where they are at in life and help them to move forward and make positive changes.

We inspire hope.

Once a woman begins to believe in herself again, and gains hope, everything changes. She begins to think about herself differently and likewise, other people begin to treat her with respect.  Goals are made, steps taken, and life changes for the better.

We build community.

Empowered women empower other people. Families grow stronger, neighbors reach out to one another, people become involved with places and things in the community, and ultimately, Elkhart becomes a stronger more diverse and vibrant community.

Soup of Success is an intensive 20-week program which addresses the whole woman mentally, physically and spiritually. Empowerment is at the core of everything we do. We help our program participants to find their voices, discover their direction, establish their goals, and overcome their obstacles and achieve those goals.

Our Social Enterprise is important because it not only teaches the women a great deal of skills, but the proceeds from product sales pay the training stipends for the program participants.  Our products include gourmet cookie mixes, dip mixes and healthy, clean-eating soup mixes (including Hearty Potato, Spicy Tortilla, Tuscan Bean, Coconut Curry, Sun-Dried Tomato Vegetable and Farmland Chicken Noodle – YUM!)

We also have a textile line with products made out of upcycled wool sweaters and fabrics from the RV and home decorating industries, including unique one-of-a-kind wool mittens, coasters, wreaths and trees; pillows, totes, and more.

We hand-pour a line of soy wax candles and also hand make shower melts.

We have household goods, baby items and much much more. We pride ourselves on quality products that bring positive, healthy, good vibes into the world and provides hope not only for the woman who made them, but also for the individuals that purchase them.
