Hire Homeless to Work for the City


Don't give it to a non-profit. Create jobs through the city or Caltrans.

Look at the models that have been used previously, both in SF and Oakland. Some urban farming groups and small businesses(Kube Ice Cream?) have used models of training the homeless or formerly incarcerated. However, I agree with another contributor..... do not make the process to include creating another non-profit from the ground up. Do it through the city's Homeless Dept, which could be expanded. J.

This has worked in other cities.

They can also be paid to provide services within their communities once they're housed such as gardening, landscaping, sweeping, cleaning, etc.

This is the best idea I read here.

Great Idea!
