Your gift to Solutions at Work transforms lives. Here’s how:

Expand the number of people we serve times 3 ($23,400)

Solutions at Work use to be open every other Saturday.  When we stopped opening on Saturdays we lost two-thirds of our participants. While we have added new members since that time we anticipate adding at least 3 times more members if we were open on Saturdays. This number is based on informal polls that we have taken of our participants and donors.

Paid Employment for One Year ($20,000)
Your $20,000 gift provides a year of paid employment and training with Solutions at Work to someone transitioning out of homelessness into the mainstream workforce. Any of the internship job descriptions are for business critical jobs that we could train a low-income or formerly homeless person to fill.

Children’s Clothes, Books, Equipment and Toys for 200 new members ($10,000)

Your gift of $10,000 will pay for new annual memberships for 200 families. On average the families that participate have 3 children. Each child receives age-appropriate and seasonally-appropriate, clothing, outerwear, books, equipment and toys. This service is provided through the Children’s Clothing Exchange.

Professional Attire for 200 Job Seekers ($5,000)
Your $5,000 gift allows us to provide seven complete interview-appropriate outfits to 200 homeless job seekers through our SolutionsWear program.

Professional Attire for 20 Job Seekers ($1,000)
Your $1,000 gift allows us to provide seven complete interview-appropriate outfits to twenty homeless job seekers through our SolutionsWear program.

A Child’s Winter Jacket ($25)
Your $25 gift allows us to purchase a new warm winter jacket for a homeless child participating in our Children’s Clothing Exchange.
