WHAT WE DO
Hudson Community Enterprises operates social enterprise businesses that provide a variety of quality services to area businesses as well as offering individuals with disabilities the opportunity to become independent, self-sufficient, contributing members of the community. HCE’s enterprise businesses include Document Scanning, Digital Printing, Shredding and Document Destruction, Building and Property Management, and Packaging and Fulfillment. A model has been created by Hudson Community Enterprises which spans Hudson, Bergen, Essex, Passaic, Monmouth, Middlesex, Mercer, Burlington, Hunterdon, and Union counties. The model leverages multiple sources of funding in those communities, and collaborates with other non-profit organizations to identify individuals with disabilities and link those individuals with employment in social enterprise businesses that have been created by HCE.
All of the social enterprise businesses HCE operates are aligned with the country’s workforce development system while employing workers with workplace challenges.. Through its businesses, HCE hires these individuals and they acquire a range of marketable skills in a work based learning environment. The acquisition of these skills can result in a promotion to more a higher skilled job within HCE’s organization or employment in the general labor market in a much more skilled position that would not have been possible prior to employment with HCE. Additionally, while working in these businesses, each individual is able to obtain a recognized post-secondary industry specific credential. This is unique and demonstrates a new and effective model of training/employment. In addition to facility based training, HCE maintains a network of businesses which provide paid and unpaid internships in the field.
