Since being hired as an intern at Sox Place Screen Printing, our new Streets2Stability intern, Mike, has shown promising results. He can now print a job completely on his own from start to finish and has been producing high-quality prints since day one. It has been a pleasure having him on as an intern, and we hope to see this trend continue as we start giving him more responsibility and room to grow. Mike has been able to develop more patience and hopes to be able to help others exit life on the streets through his position at Sox Place Screen Printing.
As we work to expand our small shop, we hope to gain more connections and customers, and ultimately hope to be able to fully financially support our non-profit drop-in center, Sox Place, with no dependence on outside funding. We are striving to grow our business in order to employ more street youth and provide them with the tools they need to conquer homelessness. We know that we are only just beginning our journey towards this dream, but we know that anything is possible, and we will continue to strive toward becoming fully self-sustaining.
