Our Mission

Employment. Confidence. Community.

To provide job-driven training and real employment opportunities to those in recovery from mental illness. 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 erase the stigma associated with mental illness.

Putting People to Work One Stitch at a Time

Every dollar that is donated or used to purchase a Mindful-Works product ensures an apprentice continues employment and on-the-job-training.

Hear From Our Program Participants

I have a chance to work on different types of projects and I have the responsibility to get things done. It’s rewarding and I find the work fulfilling. It’s fun to work with someone else in creating a product, but I especially like learning about the computer. I’ve learned about website design and how to follow up with updates. I like going to work and I especially like earning a salary.

There’s always a lot going on here, and lots of opportunities to learn more skills. If you’re working on a project, then the whole team is excited when it’s completed. I especially like doing the computer work. I like those kinds of tasks. Since starting at Mindful Works I’ve learned to handle myself better in a work situation. I still have challenges, but I’m trying to overcome them. I’m happy to be here. I’m lucky to be here.

I can start on a project and work on it on my own, all the way from beginning to completion. It builds confidence. When something doesn’t work, I figure out what’s going wrong and make the corrections. I like that. The lumber pillow–We’ve Got Your Back—is a good example where I started at the beginning making liners from muslin and continued all the way to sealing the Velcro on the finished product. Just feels good.
