Soap Hope supports organizations that promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community. This can happen in a variety of ways. We believe the biggest impact towards inclusion is providing rewarding supported employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
The disabilities community deserves the same right to equality in employment opportunities as any other group. We believe increasing employment opportunities and improving community engagement of people with disabilities are civil rights.
Hiring a person with a disability is like dropping a boulder in a pond. Major ripple effects are felt in every direction - colleagues benefit, the company benefits, and the community benefits.
Soap Hope provides support to organizations who train, place, and support people with disabilities in community employment. Every time you shop with us, you support these organizations, too.
First, we discussed our mission. We found that our mission focus would be where research showed the greatest impact on families and communities. The community of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities certainly fits that bill.
Second, we discussed our products and services. We wanted to demonstrate that even the simplest business could change the world - anyone could do it. We found just about the simplest item - a bar of natural soap - and started the company, which became today's Soap Hope. Plus, both of our families were striving to live non-toxic and sustainable lifestyles, so we were able to translate both ending poverty and healthy living into one effort.
Now, we have a warehouse, a team, thousands of natural and organic products and dozens of brands for body, beauty, and home available on our website. We have customers and members in every state in the country. Most importantly, we're touching the lives of individuals with disabilities - and with untapped potential - right here in America, and we're expanding our inventory and impact every day.
We want you to join us on the Soap Hope journey: whether you shop, become a member, or spread the word, we're happy to have you here.
