    Spentem is a restorative approach to faith

    and life that centers on positive self-image,

    instead of condemnation.

    We believe that system-affected people

    don't just need jobs, or education, they

    also need spirituality, financial autonomy

     and a purpose-driven mission to help

    others. 

     

    We believe that every human soul

    has potential to be great,

    sometimes we just need our

    identities to be

    restored.

    Spentem believes in 'us'

    and we're committed to

    showing up for one another.

    Co-op Entrepreneurship

    Spentem's flagship store in the South Shore Plaza features products, merchandise and services from system-affected entrepreneurs.

     

    We believe self-determination starts with creating a network of morally grounded hustlers. We use our platform to promote financial independence by showcasing merchants and their brands.
