Rebuilding Lives...from the Streets to a Home and a Job

Oregon

“Ending chronic homelessness in our communities means not only providing permanent housing for people whose homelessness is measured in years, but also creating the opportunity to participate in the workforce, earn an income, and to contribute to America’s economy. In these projects, the Departments of Labor and Housing and Urban Development are demonstrating how communities can develop partnerships to end chronic homelessness through employment and housing and developing the tools to help the workforce development and homeless assistance systems achieve their goals.”
