We choose to work with Residency because we believe in the Residency Mindset and the importantance of assisting those experiencing homelessness in finding permanent residency and personal growth. In selecting a company to work with for our ODD apparel we wanted to ensure that each purchase made an impact, not just in supporting our small business, but in changing the lives of those involved in the product chain, and we know with Residency the impact is huge!
CLIENT TESTIMONIAL: COLOR A LA MEXICANA (CALAM)
It was important for us to work with a local company that shares our values and we're so happy to have found Residency. We were beyond thrilled to learn about their mission - helping women transitioning out of homelessness, something that we strongly support. They've been fantastic at helping us with our ideas and making them come to life. We're super thankful!
CLIENT TESTIMONIAL: A BLOC
As a family-owned, community-focused business it's always very important to partner with like-minded people. Residency met all of our criteria: their community consciousness, attention to detail, service, and quality of product helped us produce some fantastic merchandise. Keep up the great work!
CLIENT TESTIMONIAL: MOTHERSHIP COFFEE ROASTERS
We have dealt with run of the mill merch companies and it seems to us that it was just an add-on to what we do as a cafe brand. I felt like there had to be a way to elevate the experience of purchasing merch that made an impact from our brand to the customer. Residency was a zinger when they first reached out. So when we developed a relationship that is now build on wow factor for the best service, best product, and best people we're like 'How can we use more of our budget to support Residency!'
CLIENT TESTIMONIAL: DAOU VINEYARDS
It was their mission and purpose in helping women coming out of homelessness for us. After my first call, the goals and the processes were so aligned with what we were looking for in such a short amount of time and after that, the ball kept rolling so smoothly we pressed them with a short time window to product the merchandise, the designs were approved, and then we went into production, and even went out of the way to send us proofs to make sure we wanted to move forward with one specific design. From start to finish, a smooth and easy process. And to top it all off we sold out of most of our merch within 2 weeks and had to put in another order. The quality was unreal!
