When day labor requests come in to the administration phone they will be posted on a bulletin board for those living in the transitional housing apartments. Those who are not already working and have the appropriate skill set to are free to contact the person needing short-term labor to make arrangements. It is not very likely that a call coming in can be filled on the same day as the call is received.
As funds allow, people living in the transitional apartments or staying at the shelter can apply for a limited number of salary-supported positions in the community. A portion of their hourly wages would be reimbursed to employers and staff would support both employer and employee in ensuring a successful match.
