The old Colorado barns we tear down have a story to tell and so does Raised In A Barn Furniture!
In order to build the beautiful furniture you see on our web page, we locate old barns, pull them down to recycle the wood, remove all the nails, transport the wood to our shop and the process begins of designing and creating our furniture.
Each piece of wood is unique and much time is put into it in order to develop its character. We use this process to rebuild the lives of individuals re-entering the community after incarceration.
The Rock Found is a faith-based nonprofit
501(c)3 which serves as a community partner with The Latino Coalition for Community Leadership.
The LCCL is able to fund community partners for the Work and Gain Education and Employment Skills (WAGEES), a new community re-entry program.
Services include help in finding employment, finding housing, assistance with achieving a GED or industry recognized credentials and increasing the rate at which participants enter post secondary education and training. There also programs to increase prosocial skills and build self-esteem. To find out more about The Rock Found, go to there website; www.therockfound.org
Individuals supported through this program get a second chance to impact their family and community for future generations just like the furniture they build from old Colorado barns which cannot be destroyed and will be in your family for generations to come!
Thank you for partnering with us in our mission to help re-build individuals lives as well as a stronger, better community!
