Why our model originated
ENDING HOMELESSNESS THROUGH THE DIGNITY OF WORK
WE ARE helping homeless PEOPLE
REBUILD THEIR LIVES through the
dignity of work.
ENDING HOMELESSNESS THROUGH THE DIGNITY OF WORK
Our model in a nutshell	
•  Homeless and low-income people volunteer with us and work collaboratively
on beautification projects around the community
•  In return, Team Members receive a basic needs stipend while receiving case
management and employment services
ENDING HOMELESSNESS THROUGH THE DIGNITY OF WORK

“Go, Kevin!” and “Yeah!”…Impossibly cheerful staffers relay practical
information about jobs, housing, and classes.
–San Francisco Magazine
