Increasing Access To Employment for Homeless Individuals

Partnerships for Opening Doors

Increasing Access To Employment for Homeless IndividualsThe U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), Departments of Labor (DOL) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Butler Family Fund have released a report with tips for how communities can increase access to good jobs for people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness.

The report, Partnerships for Opening Doors, signals the Obama Administration’s commitment to increasing employment and economic security for people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness.

The report:

  • Highlights the employment, training, and career development needs of people experiencing homelessness
  • Provides examples of ways communities across the country have better coordinated their employment and homelessness assistance programs
  • Gives recommendations on how the Federal government can best support local work

The report reflects the combined knowledge of 11 communities, national organizations, and Federal partners who participated in the Partnerships for Opening Doors Summit in October 2014.
