The ReWork Project is a city-wide community response that is about work itself and rethinking work for those experiencing homelessness. It is a relationally driven response. We can’t always give money and jobs to everyone, but we can offer healthy relationships with dignity and respect. It is informed by the belief that everyone has some talent, but not everyone has opportunity. We want to be distributors of opportunity.
Some things we have learned:
- Unemployment often causes feelings of depression, anger, anxiety, fear and loneliness. It attacks us and speaks lies of worthlessness.
- Many people who are experiencing homelessness are willing to work. They just need opportunity and encouragement.
Please take a few moments to learn more.
