Porchlight Products is a paid employment-training program that works with disabled and formerly homeless individuals who have struggled to return to or remain in a mainstream employment setting. We employ an often-marginalized group to help them develop a sense of purpose, accomplishment, and satisfaction in their lives that contributes to their stability and independence.
Trainees learn basic job skills such as proper hygiene and time management, as well as the skills to take raw ingredients and turn them into quality food products. These products are then available at local stores and on the menus of area restaurants. Porchlight Products revenue supports Porchlight programs, and gives trainees a sense of pride and confidence in their abilities.
Porchlight Products is a program of Porchlight, Inc. of Madison. Porchlight is a non-profit agency that provides emergency shelter, outreach services, eviction prevention, employment services, recovery support, and affordable transitional and permanent housing to over 8,000 people annually.
