Housing + Employment Works: A Discussion of WIOA, Rapid Rehousing, and Rapid Job Placement
February 25, 2016 | 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST
Are you interested in how Continuum of Care (CoC) leadership, CoC Program recipients, and local workforce professionals can more effectively provide employment supports for homeless and at-risk job seekers? Check out the new four-part webinar series titled Housing + Employment Works.
The first webinar will introduce CoCs to the use of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) as a strategy to prevent and end homelessness for participants in rapid rehousing (RRH) projects. Experts John Rio of Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. and Seattle's Nick Cobb and Mark Putnam will share their expertise and experience with addressing employment barriers for people who are homeless from their combined CoC/RRH perspectives. The webinar will cover:
- The importance of employment-focused case management in RRH projects;
- How one CoC and service provider incorporated employment supports for participants in an RRH project; and
- The successes and challenges they've faced.
