TOPIC: Riverview Gardens – Planting the Seeds of Change
Riverview Gardens is unique among organizations serving people with barriers to stable employment. Founded in December 2011, Riverview Gardens is a job-training program which grew out of the collaborative transformation of a golf course and country club to address the root causes of homelessness and poverty. Today, six interactive social enterprises provide unlimited job-training opportunities for people in need and sources of revenue to support the mission. The program helps people obtain stable, permanent employment, allowing them to become self-sufficient community members. Discover how Riverview Gardens impacts hundreds of lives each year within the community.
