Recognized as a pioneer in “social enterprise,” the Greyston Foundation and Bakery was Pace University Wilson Center Social Enterprise in Residence in 2009-2010.  Greyston uses entrepreneurship to solve the problems of the inner city and reduce reliance on external funding sources through Greyston Bakery, an $8 Million business with a double-bottom line to make a profit and to provide employment for those considered difficult to hire. Their mission is to support low-income individuals and families as they forge a path to self-sufficiency and community transformation. Greyston is an entrepreneurially-grounded organization that operates an integrated network of programs in the Yonkers area providing jobs, workforce development, housing, youth services, community gardens, and health care.  Today, Greyston programs including the bakery reach 2,200 community members annually and has become a national model for comprehensive community development.
