Welcome To Baker Industries

As your partner for outsourced labor solutions, Baker Industries provides manufacturing, fulfillment, and temporary staffing services.

A social enterprise, Baker Industries blends a unique mix of hard-to-employ adults in our nonprofit work program. Each day, more than 200 workers make their way to one of our two production facilities where they meet exacting customer specifications. Led by a dedicated staff of manufacturing professionals, our workers know Baker Industries is giving them a chance that few will provide.

Who We Are

The Problem

Finding a job is extremely difficult for adults with disabilities, a criminal record, substance abuse issues, and the homeless.

Our Approach

Our program participants build their self-esteem and work skills in a warm and caring environment until they are ready to move into the regular workforce, if they are able.

Our Impact

Since 1980, more than 10,000 vulnerable adults in our community have participated in our nonprofit work program.

How Can You Help?

Your donation goes directly to supporting our mission of providing work in a caring atmosphere for low income, vulnerable adults in our community.
