Flour to Empower Bakery

Flour to Empower is a unique program.

Flour to Empower is the social enterprise bakery of Synapse House. Each week Members may choose to participate in baking activities in our licensed commercial kitchen. There, they get hands-on, practical healing in a safe, controlled environment while creating delicious baked goods.  The process involves Members teaming up with associates and volunteers to measure ingredients, follow recipes, and carefully time these flavorful treats as they bake in our large oven. 

After each baked item has cooled, the work continues. Members carefully package the breads, brownies and cakes for sale in our bakery shop or for shipment nationwide. Baking is just one component of the therapy for Members. Business skills and customer service are critical to the process as well.  

Baked goods our Members create are: 

  • Shipped monthly to the kind-hearted donors participating in our Sweet Success Program
  • Served at Synapse House to celebrate Member birthdays and special achievements 
  • Packaged and shipped nationwide to those who support our mission.
  • Available for purchase at local festivals, community events and farmer’s markets.

Proceeds from every bakery purchase go toward supporting the brain injury and stroke survivors we serve at Synapse House. Flour to Empower is just one more way we Engage, Empower and Employ our Members.

Thank You to everyone that purchased Flour to Empower breads and bars for Holiday Gift Giving!

Our bakery was busy this holiday season fulfilling orders for gifting. Clubhouse Members spent many hours baking and carefully  packaging these items and writing out holiday cards with special messages. This rehabilitative work is rewarding in many ways. We were very happy to help others spread holiday cheer!
