REDF

Since 1997, REDF, a California-based nonprofit, has led the pioneering effort to create jobs and employment opportunities for people facing the greatest barriers to work—like young people who’ve dropped out of school, people who’ve been in prison or homeless, and those who live with mental health disabilities. We believe the opportunity to work should be available to everyone, everywhere. We know the power jobs can have in transforming lives and communities.

REDF launched the Social Enterprises for Jobs (SE4Jobs) Working Group in 2010 to connect the dots countrywide between social enterprises and the ecosystem in which they operate. SE4Jobs is a national learning and action network of social enterprise leaders united by a common purpose: to scale job creation in America for individuals facing the greatest barriers to work.
