At AVRE, we make money the old fashioned way - we earn it. And then we invest the earnings to fulfill our mission. The term "social enterprise" is relatively new, but the model has been around for decades. Plainly stated, a social enterprise is an organization that supports a social mission through earned income strategies.
Our primary customers remain departments and agencies within the Federal Government. AVRE is an active partner with AbilityOne - a federal set-aside program intended to give agencies that employ people with disabilities a competitive edge in the federal marketplace. AVRE products are sold under the Skilcraft ® brand. Toward that end, AVRE also partners with the National Industries for the Blind (NIB), the New York State Preferred Source Program (NYSPSP), and New York State Industries for the Disabled (NYSID).
