Good Karma Bikes, a non-profit social enterprise, is a full-service, second-hand bike shop open to the public providing services and support for the local community. Bicycles are the medium we use to create the disruptive change we believe is needed.
We work with former foster and other disadvantaged youth. Our primary program provides work readiness and college entrance via a two-year life, work and college program to at-risk youth. In addition to working in the shop and attending college, our youth also support our outreach programs to homeless and low income working people.
The Good Karma Bikes community provides safe, reliable bicycle transportation, repair services, and training. We refurbish, sell, and grant bicycles at our retail shop. For every bike sold, we provide one bike or service at no charge for members of the community.
Although we are a bike shop, we are not about bikes. Bicycles are simply the medium in which we work. We are a growing organization whose mission is to provide individuals with life transforming opportunities. Since our founding, we have
- Provided 17,000 free repairs
- Served 500 clients
- Granted 1,500 bicycles
- Logged 50,000 volunteer hours
In addition to our program youth and staff, it is with the support our many dedicated volunteers and donors that we are able to provide the services we do to our community.
