Help Women Thrive
WAYS YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
The Women’s Bean Project could not function without many forms of community support. While our business provides the context for the training that we provide, sales revenues only cover about 70% of the total operating expenses of the Bean Project. Generous contributions of time, products, services, and money allow us to offer the comprehensive and effective program services that sets the Bean Project apart from other transitional employment programs.
Whether you are an individual or a business, you can make a difference in the lives of the women we serve at the Bean Project!
As an individual
You can also be our Bean Ambassador by promoting and educating the public about Women’s Bean Project and by becoming an advocate for women-related issues that are so close to us such as poverty, unemployment, incarceration, domestic violence, addiction, transitional employment and social enterprise and by reporting to us on these issues if you come across them.
As a business
Women’s Bean Project offers numerous business opportunities that both promote your business within our community and support our services and programs that help chronically impoverished and unemployed women.
