The mission of Kinetic Soul food is to bring a paid work environment that is relaxing and positive into the places where women who are receiving support from social support agencies are located so they have a way to make money without the usual obstacles that poverty presents.
“I really believe that when the will is strong enough one really can move mountains. I want to teach other women how to take a “bad hand” and turn it into the best thing they dreamed of doing. I want them to feel safe and nurtured while they are doing the very hard work of changing their mindset, values and perhaps even their place in the world.” ~Nora Swanson
Creating a culture that gives back
The mission is to create and nurture a valid sense of safety, peace and a feeling of belonging inherent in the company workplace culture. The hiring priority is to train and place women who participate in Kinetic Soul Food outreach workshops and also referrals from other non-profits in the area that serve women who need this specialized type of vocational track into this work environment.
