Ridge House feasibility study

 

We’re conducting a feasibility study for the Ridge House, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization based in northern Nevada, specializing in substance abuse treatment and re-entry services.

We’ve been meeting face-to-face with community and philanthropic leaders, as well as experts with deep understandings of corrections, recidivism and, naturally, the Ridge House itself.

We now turn to the greater community to share their thoughts, insight, and suggestions for the organization and a unique project currently being assessed. Below is a blog, currently posted on the Ridge House website, providing information for those interested in participating in the study. There’s no cost to participate and no strings attached.

We’d like your feedback!

The Ridge House is taking a serious look at adding a new project to provide our clients with outstanding new skills and employment…at the same time. Your input will help us make the right decision.

With the guidance of Pete Parker and his firm, NPcatalyst, we are conducting a “feasibility”study to determine the interest and potential support from the local community. The results of the study will allow us to decide if we should launch the innovative project.

Similar to projects developed by Delancey Street Foundation and Homeboy Industries, we are looking at opening a sandwich franchise in the very near future. The sandwich shop will employ Ridge House clients and teach them foodservice, retail, and culinary skills. These skills will enable our clients to secure and become successful throughout their employment careers.
