Baker Industries has been serving adults across the Philadelphia region who have difficulty getting and keeping employment for over 39 years! We welcome individuals who are often excluded from the regular job market and pride ourselves on providing real work for real pay along with training and support designed to help each person achieve and sustain success. Each year, dozens of people progress from our innovative workforce development program to achieve good jobs in the regular economy. Based on capability, others work at Baker for an extended period and find a path to productivity and greater independence.
