We Can Help!
This isn't about earning money as much as it is about being on a platform where you can rebuild your life. "We need to do what we need to do to get to the ultimate destination".
The whole perception that people out of work are lazy or want to live off the system is wrong for the vast majority of people who are unemployed. "I'll take a job over unemployment any day of the week. I just couldn't get one." Jobs skills depreciate over time
Professional networks deplete
The duration of unemployment makes it hard to find work
Savings decline and loan defaults increase
Workers become discouraged and depressed
More people end up in the safety net of social services
You see all kinds of people from all walks of life. It's not just typical people you would think of being impoverished or liked, everybody needs the help. Every little piece they can get helps.
Have you ever applied for various jobs, "But get the line that you ar over qualified for everything you are applying for," That can be equally discouraging. 'Just give me a job!' is what you’re thinking." the lack of employment weighs down on you. "It wreaks havoc with self-esteem and confidence,"
I've come across gentlemen that have always been the only provider that have come to me in tears. They say, 'What do I do? I'm so ashamed. I'm embarrassed. Ever heard this before?
I wanted to try "some extraordinarily different things" along with the education and psychological support that addresses the standard needs of the long-term unemployed. But the truly innovative way the program works is in how the long-term unemployed actually get a chance.

we are trying to raise funds to get us a large building or store to showcase our upcycled art and maybe start some classes on how to upcycle and simple DIY projects. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
