Growth Comes in Many Forms!

Our growth over the past year has been fueled by hard work,
deep faith and our willingness to ask for support from our community. At each stage of this journey we have seen that it is our steadfastness and resilience that has shown we are an investable entity. 

Much like the people we support, we too, are proving our worth each step of the way. We have managed to create jobs, build a community of like minded people and foster other social enterprises along the way.

Each week, in our shop, at the Jacksonville Farmers Market, we get to meet people from all over our community. We are ever astounded at the diversity of our city. We get to learn about their lives and support their goals be them health, business or personal. The goal of Character Counts is to foster discussions and experiences that help us live to the Six Pillars of Character. The shop at the JFM allows us to welcome these exchanges and build relationships based on character.

It is quite an honor to host this space. We feel so privileged to  bear witness to the many stories that are told week to week. It has been so inspiring to hear how others over come hardship and find courage day to day. 

We hope you will find the time to spend a few minutes with us out at the Market. Your insights and wisdom will add to the magic of the space!
