Pioneer Human Services

About Pioneer Human Services

Pioneer Human Services is a nonprofit social enterprise that has been serving people involved in the legal system in Washington state since 1963. We address serious societal challenges, from the long-lasting trauma of incarceration to institutionalized problems stemming from racism and classism. By giving justice-involved individuals a place to live, access to behavioral health care and stable employment, we seek to reduce and make life-changing impacts on the deep social problems that often stem from a lack of opportunity. Moreover, their improved quality of life has a ripple effect that impacts their family, friends, neighbors and the broader community.

Today, we have over 50 programs across Washington state that provide counseling and treatment, diversion services, affordable housing and job-readiness training.

BUSINESSES We also operate a diverse line of businesses to include aerospace manufacturing, construction services and food services that provide on-the-job training and work experience for the people we serve, while generating revenue that helps fund our social mission. As social entrepreneurs, we combine the passionate pursuit of our mission with the discipline and innovation of a for-profit company.

VISION Our vision is a world free from injustice, discrimination and mass incarceration, where everyone has the health, acceptance and opportunity to live their lives to their fullest potential.

MISSION We are a social enterprise that partners with communities to transform society by honoring the humanity of people, reducing the impact of discriminatory mass incarceration and empowering people to live safe, healthy, productive lives through inspiration, affirmation and by overturning barriers.

As an employee, you will have an opportunity to help people realize their chance for change.
