Our case teams helped develop Homeless Action Org's core work program and a supporting campaign to remove the barriers that prevent the homeless from obtaining jobs and gaining critical skills so that they can become self reliant. They played key roles in rolling out and supporting short and long-term initiatives, along with key success metrics. Our work includes:
- Developing the core work program: consists of training, work placements and job opportunities for homeless people.
- Establishing ways to measure operational effectiveness.
- Assessing the benefits system so that going to work pays.
- Creating a strategy for the next ten years.
In addition, Bain has a goal of providing six job placements annually, giving homeless clients real work experience, a current reference, coaching to strengthen their job applications and interview practice. Our national partners meet and spend time with each HomelessActionOrg client.
