Mission Statement

Turnaround, Inc's mission is to counteract cyclical poverty, by providing a path to self-reliance through employment and skills training for individuals overcoming significant hiring barriers.

Description

Founded in 2013 Turnaround, Inc. operates at the intersection of workforce development and gainful employment. We provide full-time jobs coupled with skills training in the field of property maintenance. We maintain a focus on Washington, DC's Ward 7, where the unemployment rate is nearly 3 times the national average. All of our Trainees are referred through social services agencies that provide built-in case-management. Our Trainees are overcoming major challenges with re-entry into the workforce after homelessness, long-term unemployment, and following military service. In our first year of operations we created 5 new full-time positions, and our crew performed more than 300 property maintenance assignments. 42% of our crew is formerly homeless, 100% live in designated affordable housing.
