Many people who are chronically homeless cycle between jails, shelters, and the street, and many people have difficulty finding or maintaining housing after their release from prison. Helping people who are homeless obtain and retain employment requires an integrated services approach. Job goals and employment-related activities must be balanced with other needs such as housing and mental health and substance abuse treatment. This lecture will discuss some strategies for assisting ex-offenders. These strategies are based on research and interviews with employment specialists.
