Anchored Mouse is a social enterprise designed to tackle the challenges faced by women and gender-diverse individuals impacted by criminalization. We understand the hurdles that hinder financial independence and overall well-being, and that's why Anchored Mouse is here to make a difference.
What sets Anchored Mouse apart? We focus on providing skills development, structure, and a sense of purpose for marginalized and underserved women and gender-diverse individuals in the community who very often experience gender-based violence, poverty, insecure housing or homelessness, and social isolation. At Anchored Mouse, we're not just about creating jobs – we're building a supportive employment culture that values democratic participation, diversity, and gender equality. We firmly believe that every person impacted by criminalization deserves the opportunity for long-term economic stability and wellness. By involving vulnerable individuals in addressing employment barriers and fostering a workplace that caters to their needs – inclusive, flexible, welcoming, safe, and secure – we're not just creating jobs; we're creating conditions for empowerment, commitment, and joy.
Our Impact Goal is clear – Anchored Mouse is dedicated to fostering wellness and long-term economic stability for women and gender-diverse individuals facing multiple barriers like poverty, homelessness, gender-based violence, and criminalization.
