"At Rubicon, I've built new friendships, new foundations, and found great opportunites."
Rubicon's mission is to equip people to break the cycle of poverty. Our work, however, goes beyond simply getting a job. We support our participants to build rich and fulfilling lives outside of our walls as well. Our participants are building positive professional and personal networks, and becoming change agents in their own communities.

“I knew that God had forgiven me, but society doesn’t forgive so easily. Other people’s judgment was a big fear, but at Rubicon, they helped me to get over that.”
“I never had a job before I came here. So that was a challenge for me, getting up in the morning. Sometimes I wasn’t in the mood, but my workshop group always got me in the mood.”
