Belay Enterprises

Belay Enterprises was started in 1994 by a group of local businessmen, community leaders, and pastors who wanted to make a difference for the urban community.  Out of their vision grew Bud’s Warehouse, a home improvement thrift store selling donated and recycled building materials that also provides career and life-skills training for individuals seeking to rebuild their lives.  With the profits from Bud’s Warehouse, the nonprofit has been able to incubate several other businesses, several of which have been spun off after reaching self-sufficiency.  Current ventures being pursued by Belay Enterprises include Purple Door Coffee, a coffee shop that provides supportive employment to teens and young adults facing homeless, and New Beginnings Custom Woodworks, a cabinet manufacturing enterprise that provides training and employment to those who have experienced prison, addiction, or homelessness.
