Employment and Training for America's Homeless: Best Practices Guide


Date Published: January 1997


This Best Practices Guide (BPG) is a "how-to" guide for employment and training agencies on tailoring their service delivery systems to be more effective in training, placing, and retaining homeless individuals in gainful employment. While this guide is written from the perspective of an employment and training agency (e.g., a Private Industry Council (PIC) operating under the Job Training Partnership Act), much of the material presented is likely to be of interest to the wide variety of public and private organizations providing services to homeless families and individuals.
