The Work Contract Program is available to guests who are committed to saving a portion of their income–from either current employment or current SSI–to put towards their transition to permanent housing. The program includes an extended stay at the shelter for 10 weeks, as well as support from the Work Contract Directors and resource advocates in managing finances and securing housing. To be eligible for the program, guests must have a bank account and must save at $200 per week, which the Work Contract Directors will verify by asking for documentation during the application process. Applications are available upon request from any resource advocate, supervisor, or director, all of whom can also answer any questions that you may have. We ask that you complete your application as soon as you begin your 14-night stay.
Looking to apply? Email us at [email protected], or ask any recourse advocate, supervisor, or director in person for an application.
