Our
Mission

REDF creates jobs and employment opportunities for people facing the greatest barriers to work.

We do it by investing capital and expertise in mission-based organizations. We help them build their business. Expand their markets. Measure the results. And reinvest in programs to employ more people. We call it social enterprise. It's a revolutionary approach that can transform our economy. By giving people an opportunity to change their lives with a job, REDF believes we can build an America that works for all of us.
