Featured small business — Soul Tree LLC

Marni Barron, president and CEO of Soul Tree LLC, knew early on that she wanted to give back to her community in a meaningful way.

As a foster youth and ultimately an adoptee, she felt intrinsically responsible to impact some of our country’s most at-risk individuals on a macro level. To accomplish her mission, she founded Soul Tree in 2011 to serve a diverse customer base through engaging and empowering core human needs.

We provide resources to help develop small and local business enterprises, thus increasing the pool of qualified Certified Business Enterprises (CBEs) in the District. We mentor our Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and CBE service providers by giving them access to our network of business resources to accelerate their success and create jobs and revenue for the District.

Our program includes technical and general assistance to help local businesses file CBE applications. We value being a part of the District’s business community and firmly commit to supporting and strengthening it by providing opportunities for SBEs to thrive and by investing broadly to ensure economic success for District residents.
