    Baker Industries - Workforce DevelopmentThe purpose of our 30-year old workforce development program is to instill a strong work ethic in our population of low-income vulnerable adults (people with disabilities, former substance abusers, ex-offenders, and homeless people) and, in doing so, build their self-esteem and work skills to the point where those who are able are ready to move into the real workforce. Through such vehicles as our temporary employment program, we have been able to help an average of 67 individuals each year to do just that - 67 individuals who become one step closer to becoming independent and productive members of their communities. For those who are unable to be mainstreamed, we provide long-term employment at one of our two work sites (Malvern and Philadelphia). Each year, depending on the level of work that is outsourced to us, we touch between 200 and 400 individuals. Approximately 60-70% of our revenue comes from the work that we do for our customers - the rest we raise privately. We believe there is no other organization in this country that does what we do, i.e., blending these four, very different types of individuals in a work rehabilitation program, and doing it without any government support. Baker Industries is one of the leading outsourcing and fulfillment companies in the Delaware Valley , and a unique workplace. Striving to set the standard for outsourcing, fulfillment and temporary staffing in the region, we offer a well-supervised, well-practiced and extremely work-ready staff capable of a meticulous and intelligent response to your needs. We can provide workers for companies that need temporary help for special on-site projects. Our workers know how to handle on-the-job problems, how to spot defects, and how to complete the work you need in the way you need it.ChesterBaker Industries - Chester; MalvernBaker Industries

    Pals For Life - Education ProgramsPals For Life brings appropriate therapy animals to schools and educational centers to teach proper pet care and interaction. This education program provides the following benefits: --Teaches children how to care for their animals – how to train them, how to take care of them, and what their pet is trying to tell them. Teachers will also tie in the lessons they learned with their own lives as well. For example, when discussing how an animal communicates non-verbally, the children are able to think about how they also communicate with their own body language and how to read another person’s body language, an important life skill. --Stress the importance of having a calm body and calm voice around animals. Pals For Life will work with children on the autism spectrum and other special needs who often have challenges with self control, both verbally and physically. Using the animals as incentive and reward for maintaining a calm body and calm voice, the children are able to practice their self-control, and are rewarded with a cuddle from a snuggly dog. Teachers are often amazed at the difference in behavior of their students when the animals are around. --Teach about animal-related careers and other ways animals help their community. Pals For Life raises awareness about service animals, therapy animals and seizure-alert dogs. In addition, the children learn about careers to explore if they are interested in animals.

    Section 8 Housing - Lycoming Housing FinanceThe Housing Choice Voucher Program is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, elderly, and disabled people to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market. Housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual. Participants are able to find their own housing, including single family homes, townhouses, and apartments. The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program and is not limited to units located in subsidized housing communities. A family or individual who has been issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the voucher program. This unit may include the family’s present residence. Rental units must meet acceptable standards of health and safety and fall within reasonable rental costs, as determined by HUD regulations. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the Lycoming Housing Authority on the behalf of the participating family. The family is responsible to pay the difference between the actual rent charge by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
