This paper proposes that we can better link employment programs and services organized under the Workforce Investment Act and delivered through One-Stop Career Centers with those organized under the McKinney-Vento Act delivered through local Continuums of Care. It also provides some proposed models for implementing those partnerships. Both systems share the commitment to help their local communities solve the problems associated with homelessness and to increase the opportunities for self-sufficiency among all people living in their communities. And while they may share many elements of a similar community vision, they also differ in their languages, primary concerns, outcome expectations, and how they see their roles in their communities.
