Managing Partner, Andrew Schmidt, of Core Contractors helped The Other Side Academy secure $250,000 in funding through his involvement with the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Foundation. The Other Side Academy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, social enterprise modeled after the Delancey Street Foundation in San Francisco. Repeat criminals and chronic substance abusers, many of whom experience homelessness, can change their lives, free of charge, in a two-year, residential, non-clinical, work-oriented environment.
The Other Side Academy functions as a school where students learn vocational, pro-social, and life skills so they can succeed on “the other side” of addiction and criminal behavior.
