EarthLinks, Inc. serves the homeless and the environment, to benefit the whole world
Since 1996, EarthLinks has worked to help homeless and impoverished people in Denver, through workshops and educational programs that help them to transcend homelessness to rejoin society. The EarthLinks Workshop, a micro-enterprise program, brings homeless and impoverished people to their Peace Garden facilities and craft workshop. Participants set goals with the EarthLinks team, focusing on regaining housing, pursuing education and taking on relationship issues. They grow and harvest food and flowers in the beautiful fenced-in urban space. They keep bees, maintain a worm farm, and create Earth-friendly products, including soap, cards and more. EarthLinks participants gain a feeling of belonging and purpose that benefit recovery and rebuild lives. "The most rewarding part of EarthLinks is to actually grow something,” said EarthLinks participant Muzette Jones-Johnson. “The people here are wonderful. They’re so different from everyone else. The vibe is different."
EarthLinks takes action, uniting the fortunate, the less fortunate and the planet to build a fully-functional, future-focused, love-generating team.
