A big part of our philosophy at Crescimento Limpo is that all of the incoming residents to our halfway house come to us as partners. We are sought out for the housing and support services that we provide, but each new resident brings his own set of strengths to our table. CL residents help maintain the house and gardens in order, and we use this exchange of mutual support to affirm the dignity and capacity of each resident.
Wayne's story shows this exchange, and how his recovery served to launch a whole new initiative within Crescimento Limpo; our restaurant the "Caféla".
Through Wayne's willingness to work alongside us in building the Caféla, MANY CL residents have been employed. Employing residents has allowed us a far greater reach into the lives of each contracted individual. And as Wyne's story makes clear, we all have a lot to gain from working together!
Thank you for bringing your support to this grand collective as well!
