The New Co-op Helping Ex-Inmates Find Work—and Recover

The New Co-op Helping Ex-Inmates Find Work—and Recover

I found this great (good news!) article on Yes! and just had to share.

According to J. Gabriel Ware, a solutions reporter at YES! Magazine, 

Tightshift Laboring Cooperative is the first Washington, D.C., co-op formed and operated by ex-prisoners. The co-op offers an array of manual labor services, including residential and commercial cleaning, hauling and moving, and landscaping. It also uses eco-friendly products to provide customers with affordable, high-quality cleaning services.
