Boaz & Ruth

In 2006, Boaz & Ruth renovated a historic fire station for use as a retail/business incubator in Highland Park, which they named Fire House 15 Shops & Restaurant. As Highland Park has some of the highest concentrations of ex-offenders in Richmond, the renovation provided a critical opportunity for Boaz & Ruth to train and employ formerly incarcerated men. Boaz & Ruth has established several social enterprises, including Sunny Days Clothing Thrift, Job Connection, Harvest Furniture Thrift Store, Mountain Movers, B&R Estate Sale Services, Fire House 15 Restaurant, and Fire House 15 Catering. One of its most successful businesses, Cathedral Construction, has given men and women learning and work opportunities in specialized restoration.
