For every dollar invested into The Cara Program (the non-profit who inspired Cleanslate), $5.02 is generated out over five years, in contributions to society and public costs saved.

Cleanslate interns are motivated, trained and ready to work. And, like those who have paved the way before them, they continue to thrive on the job.

We Do This with a Lot of Help from Our Friends

Cleanslate is only able to continue this important work because of the generous support of its community, including the many customers who hire us, and the generous supporters who have helped to fuel our mission.
