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.

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.

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

Baker is an amazing place which gives an opportunity for real work to several special segments of the work force. For physically and mentally challenged workers who are not otherwise able to work in the competitve world, it provides a caring and "safe" place to realize their capabilities, socialize with others, and earn self-esteem as well as a paycheck. For recovering substance abusers , ex-offenders and homeless individuals, Baker provides a supportive but structured environment where they can get a fresh start, develop good working habits and begin to build a resume for future jobs in the "real world". Volunteering at Baker for 11 years has been very gratifying, and I have watched so many people overcome their hurdles to develop into contributing members of the company and of their communities. If you can spare some time every week or only every now and then, this is a place to check out!

Baker Industries has a lean, but highly committed and highly effective management structure. The money they raise goes directly to making the community stronger. A tour of the facility makes it clear that there is a personal bond between the staff and the people served.

Baker Industries fills a vital link in our community. By providing employment to people with mild disabilities and criminal records, they enable those who would other wise end up on welfare become productive members of society. They combine meaningful work with occupational and career counseling, training on proper workforce behavior and an atmosphere of love and respect. The employees and volenteers at this wonderful organization really feel like a family. At the same time, Baker Industries fills a much need role for their clients here in the Philadelphia area and nationwide.

When I volunteer at Baker, I am priviledged to meet some of the employees and work along side them. They are consistantly positive and grateful for the opportunity to work at Baker. They are well supported by the staff and for many, this is their family. Hiring those that are marginalized, this organization fills a gap that is sorely lacking in our society.
