Leveraging Business for Social Impact
John Rush | September 21 | 1:30-2:30 PM | Room 3020
This presentation will provide a road map on how to best use one’s organization to make a positive impact with respect to hiring, training, and supporting individuals coming from challenging backgrounds. Ohio incarcerates 53,000 individuals yearly at a cost of nearly $30,000 per person (this does not include the costs associated with our county jails). CleanTurn Enterprises leverages two brands (CleanTurn Demolition Services and She Has A Name Cleaning Services) to provide fair chance employment to those impacted by incarceration, addiction, human trafficking, and other challenging backgrounds. They have employed over 500 individuals in their first five years without the aid of public grant dollars, thereby creating a self-sustaining model of strong social impact. Communities most impacted by incarceration need us and this is why we exist!
