Baking limitless growth of personal and community transformation, one pie at a time.
Our Mission at Flourish Bakery
Our mission is building better people through the opportunity to begin again.
That’s why we developed a paid internship program for those recovering from substance use disorders who have often experienced incarceration that fosters hope, healing, and accountability while simultaneously teaching the art and skills of professional baking.
Flourish Bakery will no longer exist in its current form as of May 31. Our storefront is now closed.
Flourish was fortunate to experience exponential growth as an organization, but we recently experienced a significant loss of funding which caused us to review our sustainability. Based on increasing program and operational costs and a review of other sustaining factors, we determined that closure was the most responsible choice to make at this juncture.
Over the next few weeks, donations will be used to provide interns and staff with severance and support during this period of transition. As part of a responsible closing process, we will also be donating goods and proceeds to other nonprofits in the community that are providing essential recovery services.
Even during this challenging time, we want to express our gratitude to you for supporting Flourish over the past 5 years. Your generosity allowed us to develop an innovative program to address the challenges people face in recovery from substance use disorder and reintegrating their lives post-incarceration.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31 with any questions or requests. Thank you again for your support.
