Baker is simply amazing. To do what they do, with such little is nothing short of astounding. They take the lives of those who are at their lowest & take the time, dedication, & care to build them back up. They help make people feel special and show them that they care. After all, who does not want to be accepted and love?

Baker stands for the good in the world. That everyone is human, no matter what issues they face or what turmoils they have went through. Thank you Baker, for giving people another chance.

Baker is a non-profit that is unique in its ability to help so many different people within the community. They are really making a difference in people's lives and the family that they have created is a strong support system for those who have experienced adversity in their life and strive to better themselves at Baker and after Baker.

There are lots of non-profits that are worthy, but what sets Baker Industries apart from the rest is their unique blend of a worthwhile work experience in a compassionate and supportive environment. As a donor, it is also great to know that every dollar I give is multiplied by the work of the Baker employees. Their careful control of administrative expenses, dedication to program development and long history are outstanding.

Baker Industries not only cares about their employees, but they lead the way in providing an opportunity for each member of the team to succeed. It has been an amazing story for me to follow over the last six years and I commend the leadership for their hard work and effort.

My nephew was having trouble finding a job so decided to spend some time working as a part time volunteer at Baker. The people at Baker were wonderful and the experience really opened his eyes and invigorated him to pursue his own goals. He helped some of the folks at Baker and they helped him right back! Thanks Baker!

Baker Industries does great things for people who don't have opportunities elsewhere. Because they are a caring and socially aware company they are willing to accept and take the chance on employees who either have limits to their capacities or who have made mistakes in their pasts.

I got a great start after 5 years incarceration at Baker, and will always be grateful for that opportunity! I have since moved on to another job; still in the non-profit sector, with Habitat for Humanity. Thank you Baker Industries for making my transition much better than it otherwise might have been!

Talk about diversity and equality, Baker has it! This place of special opportunity offers those from many walks of life the chance to participate in competitive employment with support as needed. It is a cavalier approach to combine those with developmental / psychiatric disabilities along with those who have an abuse or criminal background but somehow they all realize what they have going and a compatible joint effort rises to get the job done and develop a community. Not dependent on government funding, they are well deserving of what the accomplish.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase public awareness and be more open to interviews with applicants

Our daughter worked at Baker for six months as a transition job. It was a total transformation. Baker helped increase her self confidence and self esteem while helping her control her anger management and anxiety. They were kind, compassionate and understanding whenever issues arose and helped her believe in herself. Occupational therapy was also provided and gave her many tools to help her deal with everyday challenges and stresses. Everyone deserves a second chance and Baker delivers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide therapies and exercises to help prevent muscle strain and carpal tunnel for those building boxes and doing repetitive tasks.
