Laughing Bear Bakery is a work-skills Reintegration Program for ex-offenders founded and run by Karlene (Kalen) McAllister. The goal of this nonprofit organization is to offer an employment opportunity to ex-offenders who are attempting to transition back into the community. Laughing Bear Bakery provides these men and women with on-the-job training and work experience in a steady position during their transition period.
