Creating jobs for the homeless: The Georgia Works Program Expands | WSAV TV


Hello all readers of the Blog,

I thought I would post this for y’all (link to State of Georgia DOL site below) as I see this program provides opportunities for homeless people to create opportunity for themselves.

The article / story on WSAV back in September was the source of some information – I was led to this Georgia Works program by the Experience Works program.

Don’t know if you knew they had expanded this program earlier this year, as referenced in the above article by WSAV.

This seems to be the program I had been looking for that enables for profits & non-profits to “hire” an older worker & pay their “salaries” & a stipend as well.

This link has documents in pdf at the bottom for employers to enroll & for candidates to use to help them market themselves thru this program to potential “employers”.

I think this has merit for promotion within non-profits & for profits & to the homeless & clients of service providers (me included!) as an option in these times for employment opportunities.

Let me know if you have any questions – I am pursuing this personally within for profits & non-profits I am trying to work with & offer it to you for consideration as well.

Thanks,

Marvin
