Employment. Confidence. Community.

Our MissioN

We aim to provide job-driven training and real employment opportunities to those in recovery from mental health challenges. Program participants develop skills in the design, production, and sales of high-quality, hand-crafted, wellness, meditation, and home décor products.

Through a combination of individual empowerment and community involvement, we intend to chip away at the stigma associated with mental health challenges.

Our History

Mindful Works was established as a social enterprise in late 2014 by Windhorse Community Services and is overseen by The Windhorse Guild, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit. Windhorse Community Services offers an innovative approach to the treatment of mental health and Mindful Works’ job-skills and transitional employment program furthers their mission. Studies confirm that work is a critical component in the establishment of independent living and wellbeing for those recovering from mental health challenges.

Mindful Works, initially called Infinitely Simple, was intended as a welcoming place for those who were entering or reentering the workforce. The name has changed, but the goal remains. Mindful Works is a workplace that invites trust, incites motivation, and inspires confidence.

It is a joy to visit Mindful Work and to witness all busy producing colorful and useful items. Over the years so many apprentices have mastered their emotional and social challenges while producing an array of items pleasing to the senses and useful for the purchaser. Such synergy benefits us all and counts among the positives of our community. Thank you for all you do.
