We establish market-based enterprises that provide sustainable, healing workplaces and employment for men and women who have experienced complex trauma.
We create viable businesses, that otherwise would not get started in a local context, that employ trauma survivors and bring hope to the individual and transformation to the community.
We conduct thorough field research and apply a rigorous process of market analysis and product development before starting our businesses. The ten steps of our process have the end goal in sight: A trauma-informed workplace that fosters agency in each employee, and a sustainable business that will eventually be earned out by the employees.
