Homeless, precariously-housed, and low-income job seekers suffer from many barriers as they look for work. They have fewer qualifications like specialized training or a high school/college diploma, have longer gaps in their employment history, and less overall job experience.
In addition to these personal challenges, these individuals have little to no employment-related resources, such as reliable transportation, a driver’s license, appropriate clothing, or stable housing.
HopeWorks addresses all of these barriers head-on. Our track record speaks for itself. We continue to place 350 individuals into permanent jobs every year.
