As a result of our expanding clothing bank, Blue Jacket launched a new social enterprise, the Blue Jacket Clothing Company!  With a soft launch in August 2012, the clothing store now offers our inventory of business professional clothing to community members at bargain prices while continuing to be available to Career Academy clients at no cost.  As of July 2019, Blue Jacket donated 44,000 articles of clothing to it's clients to attend our training and be interview-ready.  

Blue Jacket’s goal is to create transitional positions responsible for the daily operations of the Clothing Store using only Blue Jacket graduates.  These transitional job placements provide income, experience, and a leg up for people that possess little hope at becoming employed.  The vehicle that makes transitional employment possible is our in-house staffing agency, Blue Jacket Staffing.

This program took me in, took me under their wing, gave me a safe place, gave me room to grow — all the while believing in me and knowing that I could do it even if I didn't know it myself.
