Our social enterprises provide meaningful career opportunities for individuals facing barriers to employment, while earning revenues to supplement Chicago Lighthouse programs and services.
Our social enterprises are a unique blend of mission and business. We have operations in the areas of manufacturing, retail and customer service that provide meaningful career opportunities for individuals who face barriers to employment. In addition, these operations serve as revenue streams to supplement other Lighthouse programs and services. This double bottom line model of social enterprise creates greater self-sufficiency and sustainability as an organization, allowing us to continually meet the growing and diverse needs of our patients, clients and employees.
