Opportunity Knocks: Rebuilding Lives Through Recycling

God smiles when we take throw away stuff and use it to employ individuals rebuilding lives from addiction, homelessness and prison.

Since 1995, Belay Enterprises has started four faith ventures to employ individuals rebuilding lives from addiction, homelessness or prison. We are in the process of incubating several new projects towards our goal of creating 750 jobs a year by 2016.

Over the last 16 years, we have been most successful achieving our goals in the business ventures that include a recycling component. There is a definite sweet spot of results when we use society’s throw away items to create opportunity for those in our community deemed unemployable.

If your organization is considering opportunities for a transitional employment social enterprise, take a look at ideas around the concept of recycling.
