Sustainable Work

We create transformative and dignity-affirming jobs in market-based businesses for survivors of trauma, exploitation, and trafficking. These jobs build skills and promote flourishing in community to advance the survivor’s healing journey.

We train managers to understand the impact of trauma and adopt trauma-informed leadership practices. Employees can participate in trauma healing groups. Mentors walk with survivors to further their healing journey.

Population(s) Served
People with psychosocial disabilities

Healing takes place in community and in relationship with others. We build a trauma-informed workplace by training managers, ensuring adherence to employment laws, and conducting team-building activities. We strive to create genuine community - spaces of safety, remembrance, and reconnection. Workers learn teamwork, build trust, and gain agency and voice.
