Workforce development and employment-based practices have been proven to help end homelessness while complementing “housing first” efforts. Learn how this is being accomplished in San Francisco as we hear about employment-focused successes, challenges and innovations from representatives of the unhoused community, nonprofits, city departments and employers. Generously sponsored by Bank of the West.
