Common Thread Large Pencil Case - Assorted
Common Thread is a non-profit society offering training and employment in sewing and craft to people with social and work barriers. Their goal is to provide program participants with work skills that will enable them to generate income, and to offer social engagement opportunities where they can feel valued for their skills and experience rather than judged because of their mental health barriers.
In addition to offering support to individuals, the programs address a skills shortage in the local manufacturing industry and contribute to the city's zero-waste goal by using repurposed fabric and crafting materials. Once our participants acquire the skills, we support them in either finding employment outside Common Thread, or by integrating them into our own production programs.
The approach to skills training and employment has demonstrated that having additional income, as well as a supportive environment where our program participants are valued rather than judged consistently leads to greater financial stability, improved health outcomes, and an increased sense of social connectedness. Together these results benefit not only the individuals but also the community.
