Opened in 2019, Fountain House + Body is a social enterprise by Fountain House with a triple bottom line:
to provide meaningful paid work opportunities to people with serious mental illness
to produce and sell environmentally sustainable, low-waste products
to generate a profit to sustain and enhance our employment program.
From its inception, Fountain House and Body has been a community endeavor, with staff and members working side by side to develop soap recipes, research market trends, and find the right location for our shop. We took inspiration from the work-ordered units of Fountain House, as well as from the plastic free and zero waste movements to design a store that is both a rehabilitative space and a resource for durable, reusable, and beautiful cleaning products and home goods.
