Tills project came about through a series of reactions that I had in response to a class project I was involved in my sophomore year at Kalamazoo College. My class, Methods of Social Research, required the completion of an ethnography of a sub-culture within the Kalamazoo Community, for which my partner and I chose the main office in the women's shelter at the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. While doing research, I became fascinated with the ways in which the staff attempted to "empower" the women, in an effort to get them back on their feet and re-enter society as fully functioning, productive members. In that it was a Gospel Mission, all of the rehabilitative techniques employed were heavily rooted in religion: the women did things for God, and Jesus Christ was seen as the ultimate enabler.
