About The Market Project

We want

…to see men and women find hope and flourish through safe, dignity-affirming, healing work.

We create

…profitable businesses that offer stable jobs and support healing for survivors of trauma, exploitation, and trafficking.

Safe And Creative Work

We focus on products that emphasize hands-on engagement in a supportive workplace. Ensuring managers are trained to recognize and mitigate the impact trauma has on men and women enhances the healing journey.

Market-Driven Products

Our products must have robust market potential independent of the backstory of the workers who create them. We do the hard work of market research and product development on the front end, thereby creating the greatest potential for successful products.

Strength­ened Aftercare

We seek to build on the work done by Care Partners, instilling more and more agency and stability amongst those employed in the businesses. When we employ people, provide job training, and create trauma-informed workplaces, we free our Care Partners to focus on counseling and life skills training.

Improved Prevention

Market-focused, reproducible businesses will bring enduring stability to communities as opportunities are offered to trauma survivors and those who might otherwise be vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation.
