The idea was birthed shortly after an assigned work project was completed, and future projects were either put on hold or cut from the budget entirely. Suddenly, Latent Resources’ founder, James Thomas, had become a statistics, but he knew it wasn’t permanent and could help others deal with a lifestyle of lacking steady income.

Ideas began flooding in, and after many sleepless nights of scribbling down thoughts, it was time to turn thought into action. To accomplish this, Latent Resources was formed as a means of providing hope, training, and opportunities to those without work. Our goal is to increase the confidence, refinement, and marketable value of the unemployed, the underemployed, and the vocationally frustrated.

A frightening phenomenon was noticed locally: A rise in suicide rates proportionate to unemployment, which further compelled him to establish a means of encouragement, support, and value for those whose livelihood had been stripped away.

Meet Latent Resources.
