Fierce founder Chelsea Schuringa was moved to make a difference in the lives of youth experiencing homelessness after working in shelter settings for many years. After witnessing the incredible potential of these young people and the unfortunate stigma they experienced outside of the shelter, Chelsea launched Together the Label with the ultimate goal of creating a space that employs youth experiencing homelessness and helps them build meaningful relationships so they can thrive. While Chelsea and her team work toward their goal, Together the Label is partnering Jubilee Designs, a social enterprise that operates out of the Yonge Street Mission in Toronto. The organization employs youth experiencing homelessness to create unique products—including Together the Table jackets—and supports them in facilitating their own workshops. The proceeds from every Together the Label purchase goes directly towards employing homeless youth and providing funding to other initiatives that serve them.
