About Clean Slate

Using the Power of Business to Create Lasting Change

What is the Clean Slate Program?

Clean Slate is comprised of professional service companies designed to erase the barriers that keep the homeless guests of Presbyterian Night Shelter from working and contributing to our community. Our goal is to break the cycle of homelessness by providing steady employment that restores dignity and provides hope.

Open to all guests who want to work, the program will provide gainful employment, case management support and job skill development to aid guests in their journey from homeless to home. Our employees are welcome to work with us indefinitely. However, it is our hope that with the experience, resources and training provided at Clean Slate, they will be able to transition permanently into the workforce.

By contracting with Clean Slate, you can partner with us to end homelessness in our community outside of traditional volunteer and donation opportunities while receiving a professional service.
