GETTING TO THE HEART OF DOING GOOD
Let’s be clear – getting to the heart of Doing Good is not about charity. It is simply about opening equitable access to work opportunities for people who are qualified, skilled, and motivated to prove themselves.
Often, people who fall outside accepted norms and into defined categories bear the stigma of societal labels that are distracting to employers. The result is untapped talent pools where chronic under-employment is prevalent and, under certain circumstances, unemployment is always a threat.
Our Doing Good refers to restoring human dignity through employment that properly values the skills and work ethics of job seekers. When employers Hire Well and are intentional about Doing Good, the community prospers in abundance as individuals earn their personal and financial stability. Outcomes and lives change, families leave behind system dependency, communities increase the local tax base, and hope sparks the freedom to dream the dream of potential!
