About Us

We're a social enterprise that produces custom, branded apparel to help women transitioning into permanent housing. We provide our employees with opportunities for personal growth and self-sufficiency, and we provide our clients with opportunities to support those in need while receiving beautiful products. Our aim is always to cultivate well-being for clients, partners, and staff. We specialize in custom screen printing, embroidery, sublimation, and DTG (Direct-to-Garment) printing of the highest quality. We also produce just about any promotional item you can think of!

After working with those living on the streets of downtown LA for 7 years, we learned that a person would move forward with their life when they believed that mobility was possible within a supportive community. Now we welcome our employees into an environment that's centered around our self-development program called Residency Mindset. We do so to address the areas of greatest need for those transitioning into permanent residency. These areas include: personal goal-setting, financial planning, mental/physical health, problem-solving, interpersonal communication, and work training.

We believe that challenging, purposeful work naturally leads to personal growth. To emphasize such growth, we offer paid-yoga, paid-therapy, and paid in-house tutoring. In 2022, we will be launching our Residency Mindset Therapy Program, which will be a priority-access trauma therapy program for women transitioning into permanent housing. We see mindset and mental health as the foundations of sustainable living, especially for those who have experienced significant hardship.

Staff Testimonial:

"Residency has changed the trajectory of my life. Working in a supportive environment has helped me become a better problem-solver and an all-around more disciplined person, both at work and at home. I recently earned my GED and have since enrolled in my first college class. I appreciate learning from Tyler and Hughie, and I want to improve because they set an example of how to work hard with compassion and discipline."

-Nikki Moore, Sales, Research, and Program Associate since 2016
