We’re proud to announce that we have recently entered into a partnership with atWork Australia, to launch an exciting new social enterprise.
Dr. Joe’s is a mobile coffee van offering great service, high-quality coffee and convenience to customers while providing hope and opportunities for people working hard to improve their lives.
Dr Joe’s staff are all participants of our Adult Community Education (ACE) program, who, despite their best efforts, have endured the stress and uncertainty of long term job searches. Dr Joe’s allows participants to gain current work experience, form relationships, re-build confidence and reconnect with the community.
An extra innovation of the business offers customers a further option to ‘pay it forward’. Tokens can be purchased from Dr Joe’s, with the proceeds going towards cooked meals for people experiencing homelessness.
atWork Australia provides support for people seeking work while they are managing an illness, disability or other health conditions.
