BLOC Industries is a neighborhood social enterprise

BLOC Industries has grown out of our jobs training program, and continues our track of training urban men and women by expanding it further. BLOC Industries is committed to creating quality products and services, at competitive pricing as part of our mission to reclaim lives and restore hope to the residents of Price Hill and surrounding communities. We train short-term as well as employ residents of Lower Price Hill and surrounding communities. By reaching out to those who would otherwise have great difficulty in finding work, BLOC Industries gives them a second chance at providing for themselves while learning an employable trade. We mentor and develop relationships, teaching them to be responsible citizens.

Your purchases from a BLOC Industries company help to sustain and continue this ministry. The net proceeds from our businesses are reinvested in the community, helping more families imporve their lives. Graduates of the BLOC Industries move on to finding jobs with other companies, help train others or even work to help grow the BLOC Industry companies.
