Did you know that every time you shop or donate at Bud’s Warehouse you’re directly helping the community? It’s true! Bud’s is a non-profit job-training program funded by sales of new and lightly used building materials donated to the organization. Our mission is to employ and job-train individuals rebuilding lives from prison, addictions and homelessness through our career and life-skill development program.
Bud’s Warehouse recycles and sells usable building materials to the public. Bud’s offers kitchen cabinets, appliances, carpet, hardware, light fixtures, windows, doors, bathtubs, sinks, cabinet doors, furniture, and many other building materials, all donated by Denver-area home owners, builders, re-modelers, and suppliers.
All of our program employees at Bud’s Warehouse are facing significant barriers to finding work, including criminal backgrounds, substance abuse or unstable housing situations. Bud’s employees receive vocational and soft-skills trainings while on the job for six months to a year and then after successfully completing the program transition to employment in the community.
Besides supporting employment and job training, extra revenues from Bud’s Warehouse go to the creation of new ventures that employ individuals rebuilding lives. Through Belay Enterprises, Bud’s has been instrumental in the creation and incubation of several other faith venture businesses including Second Chances Thrift Store, Freedom Cleaning Services, Good Neighbor Garage and most recently New Beginnings Custom Woodwork.
