Our enterprises build skills
that give marginalized people sustainable solutions towards independence.
Our enterprises lie at the intersection of where the people’s greatest needs meet their best opportunities. People in recovery need three things to recover well and maintain recovery—they need meaningful employment, social connection with peers/ wider community and a supportive team of family friends and health workers. While the sectors we will invest in span a range depending on the clients needs, as of 2018, we are prioritizing investment in two sectors: vocational skills and mental health awareness and recovery. As we grow we intend to enter other sectors within the enterprise market.
