"TeamWorks transforms low-wage, "dead-end" service jobs into powerful social and economic development opportunities. Members of The TeamWorks Cooperative Network are able to earn a good income and pull themselves out of poverty, develop financial assets, become co-owners of a social business, gain access to quality health insurance, and develop their skills and interests."
TeamWorks has started with a housecleaning cooperative in San Jose, CA, and they have plans for expansion. Some useful organizational planning documents, written by David Smathers Moore, are available on their website:
