About Junk 4 Good
Junk 4 Good is a not-for-profit social enterprise based in Edmonton, Alberta. Our mission is to alleviate poverty through employment and offer a sustainable future for local non-profit programs. We are a multifaceted organization, providing professional services to Edmonton and the surrounding area.
As a social enterprise, Junk 4 Good is structured to focus on its staff and its social mission, rather than simple profit. Junk 4 Good creates entry level, labouring employment opportunities for men and women who are looking to enter, re-enter or advance their skills in the workforce. Our managing staff are seasoned and qualified industry professionals who mentor employees into advancement through the company or further employment within other industries.
Junk 4 Good is one of many services offered through its parent organization Redemptive Developments. In 2011 Redemptive Developments was established when three front-line social workers began to identify additional issues that their formerly homeless clients were facing–even after obtaining stable housing. Atop the list of barriers facing the newly housed, the issue of meaningful daily activity and employment was isolated as one of the keys to maintaining physical and mental health.
Equipped with many years of experience in the for profit business sector, these three began to build a strategy to offer a viable option to fill this void. Their desire to change the way non-profit organizations raise funding , along with a motivation to empower people through employment, led to Redemptive Developments seeing rapid growth. Beginning with only a single service, operating with a single truck and two staff, Redemptive Developments now offers multiple services in many different fields of work with a fleet of vehicles and many full-time and part-time staff members.
With a desire to become recognized as a household name while offering world class services, a re-brand of the home services division was made to become 4 Good Home Services, as well as the junk removal and bin rental service to become Junk 4 Good.
As a non-profit organization, we are very different from other junk removal companies. We use the proceeds from Junk 4 Good to fund local non-profit services and create jobs for marginalized workers in need of a second chance.
Our model has a happy coincidence that you will appreciate. Our staff maintain a great deal of job satisfaction, we are serious about what we do, and it shows in our work ethic. And our customer service ratings reflect our happy and efficient workforce.
