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 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!
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.
Baker Industries is truly making a difference in the lives of many people as well as being a great asset to the business community. They not only do meaningful work but also provide meaningful employment to people in many walks of life. I was touched when I volunteered there by the caring and extra effort the staff took to be there for the employees while also ensuring that the job gets done right.
