Job Readiness Activities Project CARE Project CARE is a service to provide Google Voice phone numbers and voicemail accounts to phoneless job seekers on public assistance and homeless individuals. It's sometimes easy to take the little things in life for granted: a haircut, a shower, shoes or even a phone number. Sometimes life doesn't turn out the way people planned, and those little luxuries become much harder to come by. In today's connected world, many of us don't think twice about picking up the phone to place or receive a call. However, for a homeless individual, a phone number can be an important lifeline, connecting you with prospective employers, health care providers, family and friends. Project CARE phone numbers provide a way to reconnect with those they've lost touch with over the years and to stay in the loop of services and connections people need.
