Our Mission

Our mission is to create opportunities that empower personal growth through culinary training and employment. Cutting Barriers Employment and Training aims to address the current and evolving needs of our community through training, employment, and community partnerships.


Participants in the training program will not only gain employable skills, they build confidence in themselves and motivation to succeed in the workplace. It is our mission to instill each individual with a healthy sense of self that will empower them in their daily lives.


Providing three square meals a day at Under One Roof creates employment opportunities for trainees and graduates to grow their culinary skills. Wrap around services also provide job placement opportunities within the community and continued support as trainees enter the workforce.


Many small hospitality businesses are struggling to find and keep reliable staff. We partner with local restaurants who want to hire trained, ready & willing workers. We work closely with them to ensure that the transition from training to employment is supportive, collaborative, and win-win.

Help Us Reach Our Goal

Cutting Barriers will open its doors in 2020 in the new Under One Roof facility with a brand new kitchen, staffed with a talented chef and training mentors who are aligned with our mission. To accomplish this we will need $380,000. Help us achieve our goal and donate today.

We have raised $50,000 with a goal of raising $380,000
