In an effort to reduce poverty and homelessness in the Louisville area, we’ll soon be offering a new way for unhoused individuals to earn money and connect with our life-changing resources.
Another Way, a pilot program, will target high-traffic areas and offer unhoused individuals an opportunity to get off the streets and to different work opportunities, where they’ll receive a lunch and $50 stipend for a day’s work.
The greater goal of the program, however, is to connect unhoused individuals with our many resources, which aim to end poverty and guide individuals to self-sufficiency. In the 2020 fiscal year, Goodwill partnered with 751 community employers to place Kentuckians into 2,073 jobs across the state – both inside and outside of Goodwill.
