Open Hearth Works


What works? Open Hearth Works!

A good job is one of the best ways to help men experiencing homelessness succeed.

Launched in 2016, Open Hearth Works is a social enterprise – a business designed to help The Hearth earn revenue while pursuing our mission. We provide contract labor for businesses and events in Greater Hartford, including:

  • Maintenance and trash removal
  • Parking and concessions
  • Snow removal
  • Yard cleanup

Most importantly, we provide paying jobs to help men build skills and gain experience. It takes a job to get a job!
