The business of hope for youtPhoto collage for Elpis Enterprisesh

Elpis Enterprises (Elpis is Greek for Hope) is a Saint Paul-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides job training, work experience and job placement for homeless or precariously-housed young people ages 16-23. Through several social enterprises, youth build skills, build experience and build relationships in the community. Young people develop as individuals and potential employees by working in real enterprises gaining the skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary to overcome homelessness and become contributing members of our community.

 
 
 We are building adirondack chairs!
 
Special summer project.  Elpis is working with the Original Green Chair Project to produce their classic adirondack chair!  We are offering a limited production of this chair.  For every 2 chairs sold, we will donate a chair to a youth program or organization affected by the community destruction in Minneapolis and St. Paul.  You can purchase a chair or sponsor a chair and designate an organization to receive it.  You can purchase your chair here.  Elpis Store
