The result is SVdP's Cascade Alliance, a business incubator that provides free full-service consulting to help nonprofits:
- Launch a revenue generating reuse/recycling social enterprise, e.g. mattress recycling, thrift store, used book sales
- Create quality jobs for people with barriers
- Promote environmental stewardship through reuse and recycling
Since 2013, the Cascade Alliance has helped 12 nonprofits launch 15 social enterprises, creating 90 jobs for people with barriers, generating more than $5 million in revenue, and recycling or reusing over 7 million pounds of materials.
