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 Impact

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

Diversity and Inclusion

We all bring with us diverse perspectives, experiences, lifestyles, abilities, and cultures. Baker Industries teaches respect for and appreciation of differences. Baker Industries recognizes, respects, and appreciates the differences in all people.
