HomeWORK Project in Connecticut

HomeWORK Project

he HomeWORK Project is a unique approach to helping supportive housing tenants enter the workforce (or advance in their employment), improve their earnings and/or strengthen their education and training. It is a partnership between CSH, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Department of Social Services Bureau of Rehabilitation Services.

HomeWORK project staff and partner agencies deliver services to supportive housing providers allowing them to be current with employment industry best practices. Staff assist providers to establish or strengthen ties to local workforce agencies and to deliver their services more efficiently and effectively. HomeWORK is not intended to recreate or reinvent existing resources but will carve out resources and trainings appropriate for a particular agency.

The project's video, HomeWORK:  The Way to Work , focuses on communicating the need for and the benefits of a strong relationship between tenants and case managers, as supportive housing tenants pursue their goals of education and employment.

HomeWORK:  The Way to Work, funded through Connect-Ability and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, features the stories of three supportive housing tenants and their case managers as the tenants pursued their goal of returning to work or receiving an education.
