Homelessness and Workforce Development

Investing in job training and skills that work to improve the employment status of homeless families presents a huge opportunity for impact. Studies show a return on investment as high as 9.00 per dollar invested! The majority of homeless people who currently are unemployed are working hard to find employment. It is a battle every day to find job opportunities when you are struggling with basic survival such as where will my kids sleep and what will we all eat?  Homelessness carries with it huge barriers to employment. Many people find themselves without education and basic skills to find and keep employment. 

Village of Hope Family Shelter have adults who truly want to “make things better for my kids” and “make a difference by working hard and doing the right thing”.
