Baker Industries is not just a great nonprofit. They are a nonprofit with a heart of gold. At a time in our daughter's life when the "professionals" were telling us that she didn't have the ability to sustain competitive employment and we should seek out a quality day program, Baker Industries was willing to give her a chance. They have honored that commitment for 4 1/2 years. They brought her from only being able to attend to a task for a couple of hours a day to being productive member of the Baker team for a full shift. This did not happen by accident but rather by design. When you put the focus on someone's abilities, they far out shine their disability. Baker Industries has not just given her a job. They have nurtured a sense of self worth, pride in herself and sense of community. Many of Maria's successes in her personal life are directly tied to the efforts of Baker Industries. They are life changers!!
My son got a job at Baker Industries and the change in him has been remarkable. This is his first official job, and his attitude has done a complete 180 degree turnaround. He now feels as if he has a sense of purpose and understands the importance of responsibility. The staff at Baker has been there to guide him along the way, either by allowing him to learn new skills or to just make sure he stays focused on doing his job. I cannot say enough good things about Baker Industries
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.
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 is a unique employer dedicated to serving the members of our community who need employment assistance most. Congratulations and thank you for all the wonderful work you do!
Baker Industries gives second chances to people who are down on their luck.I know some people personally who work there and it has given each one renewed hope.
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.
Over the years we have bought Baker Industries products to give them support for their noble work. They do marvelous work with their "employees" and are very well managed and led. Truly inspirational.
Baker Industries fills a void by employing and training those that other companies won't take a chance on hiring. Bravo!
