Individuals rebuilding lives need both supportive living environments and redemptive employment. If either is missing, the challenges of life can quickly become overwhelming and the bad choices of old get repeated with the resulting consequences.
At Belay Enterprises and Bud’s Warehouse, we are in the third month of an exciting relationship with local transitional housing provider Providence Network. As part of an innovative grant funded by Mile High United Way, individuals get a supportive transitional home program as well as employment and job training through a comprehensive partnership.
This innovative partnership is highlighted in a recent video produced by Providence Network for presentation at their annual luncheon. It's a great video but be sure to have your tissues at hand.

If you work with either a transitional housing or job training organizations, I encourage you to partner in the interest of better serving disadvantaged populations.
And if you are a Christ-following entrepreneur, you can use your business skills to create supportive faith venture businesses to employ individuals often left behind in our society.
