Elpis Enterprises


Elpis Enterprises (Elpis is Greek for Hope) is a Saint Paul-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides job training, work experience and job placement for homeless or precariously-housed young people ages 16-23.  During a Foundation after-school program called Youth Networks, there was an opportunity to sponsor a booth at a local community festival. When brainstorming ideas about what the youth group could sell, the idea came up to make something by hand. Several dozen bird feeder kits were cut and assembled by the group and taken to the festival to sell. They sold all the bird feeders and were asked to make more. Several years later and over 10,000 products sold, the program, Elpis Enterprises, has a life of its own. The program now offers opportunities for other youth groups to have the same success, as well as limited classes open to the public. Learn more at https://www.elpisenterprises.org/.
