We recognize that lack of work often leads to risky and unhealthy behaviors that negatively affect the health of the individual and their community.
By addressing the issue of employment for vulnerable adults, Baker seeks to implement long-lasting change in the lives of those who face extreme barriers to finding and keeping a job. For these individuals who have very few job options and often face other challenges as well, work offers financial stability, structure, routine, and opportunities for positive social interaction. Employment is essential to breaking free of the cycles of poverty, violence, crime, and dependence, a transformation that brings enormous benefits to both the individual and the community.
