the project

Our mission is to help women leaving our prison systems in Cleveland gain employment or start their own businesses as Floral Designers.  Hand 2 Hand Inc has formed partnerships with the New York Art Institute of Floral Design and The State of Ohio Department of Corrections to provide workforce development training for formally incarcerated individuals returning home from Northeast Reintegration Center, Cleveland. We plan to use this project to help Hand 2 Hand Creations, florist shop train and employ women returning home from prison and to reduce the rate of recidivism in the State of Ohio. This will help the City of Cleveland increase the total of small business owners in the greater Cleveland area.

the steps

Our first steps will be to purchase a greenhouse that will provide plants and flowers for floral arrangements.  This will allow us to cut the cost of purchasing flowers from floral wholesales.  We will being to get our business location ready to train the women that signed up to participate in the floral design training.
