SOCIAL ENTERPRISES

What is a social enterprise?

A social enterprise uses its business not only to earn profit, but also to contribute to social good. Both Riverside Grill and Community Threads are social enterprises. The individuals who work in the store and the restaurant are trained and develop skills that they can use when they move to another job. They are able to work in the kitchen, as a waitress, or in a customer service role at the store and gain experience and comfort in their skills at these businesses.
