Homeless Employment Strategies began with the goal of increasing employment opportunities to homeless individuals. However, through their research they discovered that opportunities were not the problem; instead once individuals got a job it was hard for them to maintain the position and also use the money wisely. They then looked at ways to help homeless individuals manage their money as well as provide accountability to incentivize them to save.
