Light Manufacturing & Assembly // Job Training Center

OutSOURCE ReSOURCE is a poverty-fighting low-cost light manufacturing and assembly initiative of Catholic Charities of Tennessee offering its varied services and capabilities to businesses and organizations in Middle Tennessee seeking affordable outsource assistance.

Since its creation in 2011, the employee/clients of OutSOURCE ReSOURCE have provided services that ultimately supported businesses and organizations in the printing, healthcare, agricultural, ad specialty, disaster relief, employment training, community service, and high-performance woven fabrics fields. Our customers include manufacturers, distributors, nonprofit agencies, and local organizations.

Although our primary focus is providing Middle Tennessee's companies and organizations with an affordable resource for light manufacturing and assembly outsource needs, OutSOURCE ReSOURCE has a special purpose for its existence. The program was started, as a Catholic Charities poverty -fighting initiative, to provide employment-challenged neighbors with a temporary (90-120 days) employment opportunity designed to provide training in soft and hard skills and guidance as they ready themselves to seek fulltime employment in the local labor force.

The service goal of OutSOURCE ReSOURCE is to help our employee/clients get their feet back on the ground and begin to move their way towards better compensated, more meaningful work. Our hope is that by providing this opportunity, our employee/clients and their families will begin to work their way out of poverty.

Over the course of our first two years in operation, more than 100 individuals have been approved for hire, with more than 75% of them becoming Catholic Charities employees. Our employee/clients generally move on to better paying positions or return to school to enhance their education or skills.
