Building with Consciousness

Former Marine Andy Williams knew that he wanted to bring the problem-solving mentality he developed in the armed forces into his work as a civilian. Andy found his new challenge in affordable housing and creating employment opportunities for other veterans who often are left out of the job market. His company, Rehab Warriors, teaches veterans a new skill set in home building and rehabbing, making them more employable while increasing affordable housing in lower- to moderate-income communities.

On today’s episode of Start Small, Dream BIG learn about Andy’s decision to create a for-profit rather than a non-profit company to empower veterans in the workforce and increase their economic mobility, and how Rehab Warriors’ B-Corp certification holds them to a higher standard of operation.
