Help 2 Work connects homeless Chattanoogans to job opportunities by providing a means of transportation for their first month of work. Homelessness is an economic condition that affects the entire community. With the right help and support, HELP 2 Work seeks to restore a homeless person to self-sufficiency with a place in the workforce and return to being productive members of society. Often, the single largest barrier to persons with disabilities who are looking for jobs is overcoming the social stigma and lack of transportation to employers and jobs. Case managers work with clients to secure housing, transportation, and essential needs.
