ACE – combating the cycle of homelessness at its roots
We’re proud to announce we’ll be designing and coding a new website for the Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless.
Its mission is to enable New York City’s homeless men and women to re-enter the workforce and achieve long-term economic self-sufficiency. It serves recovering homeless individuals with multiple barriers to employment, including substance abuse, criminal histories and psychiatric diagnoses.
Its two signature projects are making a great impact.
Project Comeback is an intensive, four to six month vocational rehabilitation program that incorporates work experience, job-readiness workshops and one-on-one counseling. Upon securing full-time employment, graduates of Project Comeback are encouraged to sign up for Project Stay, our life-long job-retention program. Project Stay provides a permanent safety net for its clients, helping them to maintain and build upon the positive changes they have made in their lives. ACE’s unique strategy has been wildly successful. Since January 2006, 87% of its clients have remained employed for two years or longer.
Support the GOOD work going on at ACE.
