Learn about our services

What is open hiring?

By filling jobs without judging applicants or asking any questions, Open Hiring creates opportunities for individuals who have been excluded from the mainstream workforce. Complemented by community programs that provide employees and their neighbors with additional services that help people keep a job, Open Hiring provides people with the opportunity to experience the dignity of work and improve their lives and their community.

 

Practicing Inclusion

Our Open Hiring Model creates opportunities for everyone: women, men, people of color, people of all faiths and sexual orientations, immigrants and refugees, economically disadvantaged and formerly incarcerated individuals, and all others who may have been excluded or blocked from contributing to the health and strength of our society.
