Bud's Warehouse Enters Its 20th Year...and Other Highlights from the Second-Half of the Year

It's been a busy year as Belay Enterprises creates self-sufficient faith venture businesses that provide jobs for individuals rebuilding lives from addiction, homelessness and prison:   

  • Bud's Warehouse is entering its 20th year of offering employment and job-training in its home improvement thrift store. Since its start in 1994, Bud's has served hundreds of individuals looking to rebuild their employability after dealing with addiction, homelessness or prison. Belay hopes to celebrate this 20 year milestone by raising funds in order to expand Bud's into a new location to grow employment opportunities for the people we serve.
  • Belay's Purple Door Coffee project,which launched in May of 2013, continues to  thrive as we employ formerly homeless young adults. The store opened to tremendous support from the Denver community as well as accolades from area coffee  aficionados. But most of all, Belay is excited by the difference the project is making in the lives of young adults transitioning from homelessness.
  • New Beginnings Custom Woodworks, our custom cabinet employment program, continues to provide quality cabinet-making training for individuals rebuilding lives. We are so thankful for the growing support from customers whose cabinet orders are allowing us to continue expanding jobs and training opportunities.
God has given us a big vision for creating new employment opportunities for people rebuilding lives. But we are reminded that we can not run all of these projects on our own. We are always looking to partner with Christ-followers that have a heart to use their business talents or resources to create jobs for people with significant barriers to employment.
