" The knitting I learned as part of the program helped me deal
with my anxiety and fear of crowds."
Our commercial sewing business became our first social enterprise. Starting in 2008 our business venture enabled us to offer employment opportunities to the individuals in our program. By teaching them to sew professionally we are able to provide the local community businesses and individuals with, medical apparel, such as scrubs and lab coats, custom embroidery, specialty items, designer aprons, stadium blankets, and other items that are needed. By working with area businesses we are able to expand our mission and serve the at-risk individuals in Flint.
