Women’s Bean Project

Women’s Bean Project is a nationally-recognized social enterprise that offers a transitional job in gourmet food manufacturing and handmade jewelry assembly designed to provide women immediate income, arrange support services to overcome barriers to employment, and teach the job readiness skills needed to get and keep a job. Program participants come to this transitional employment program from backgrounds of chronic unemployment and poverty, and the program helps them develop the work and interpersonal skills needed to function independently in the workplace and community. After nine months, they transition into career entry-level jobs – often for the first time in their lives.

Grant period: 2016-present
