“Stay at Home for the Homeless”, and join the mission behind Shelters to Shutters
Virtual fundraiser taking place October 23rd to benefit the homeless
Shelters to Shutters, a non-profit that operates in 12 cities in the United States, pairs motivated, ready to work individuals with open, entry level positions in the apartment industry. Every person hired saves local communities more than $36,000/year in social service expenses, contributes more than $7,000 in taxes and changes the trajectory of not only themselves, but for their spouse and dependents.
A “Win-win” for candidates & sites with vacant positions
S2S has the goal to stop homelessness, particularly “situational homelessness”. They do it by educating, training, and helping place qualified candidates that may not have a permanent address or “home” to list on an application. Shelters to Shutters has teamed up with vendors, management companies and owners/operators, providing a connection to propel change when it comes to “situational homelessness”. The program has successfully transformed the lives of numerous individuals in need of employment and shelter nationwide. So how does it work?
The makeup of a Shelters to Shutters “Success Story”
Qualified candidates without a job or an address to put on an application are given the opportunity to fill a position with an on-site team in the multifamily industry
Candidates receive ongoing training and development and play an important part on their new team, with a new promising career in the apartment industry.
In addition to receiving a job, housing discounts are provided.
The candidate and hiring company both benefit and transform hopeless situations into promising futures.
Since 2007, the individuals and families experiencing homelessness has decreased by 12%, but those gains are expected to be completely wiped out by the pandemic, equating to more than 360,000 men, women and children living without the most basic of necessities, shelter. In addition, with staggering unemployment and eviction moratoriums running out, Shelters to Shutters is facing a tsunami of people looking for a hand up, NOT a handout. Simply put, they need additional staff to accommodate the growing population who need both housing and employment.
