This lecture is intended for outreach workers and case managers working in homeless programs and community rehabilitation programs. This lecture explores three programs that have been demonstrating remarkable success in helping people who are homeless get and keep permanent, full-time jobs. Each of the three programs places more than 60 percent of their homeless clients into permanent, full-time jobs. Their clients who have found full-time work have also been successful in moving into permanent housing. This lecture focuses primarily on serving homeless single adults and families although you might find it useful if you are helping older adolescents as well.
