Community Jobs ProgramEdit

The Community Jobs Program is a collaborative effort of Goodwill, Asian Neighborhood Design, the San Francisco Department of Human Services, and the Private Industry Council. These agencies partner to provide CalWORKs recipients who are not employed for at least 32 hours per week at the end of their 24-month time limit a wage-based community service program. Participants spend six to nine months at a nonprofit or government agency in a position designed to enhance their employability. During this phase of the program they receive intensive case-management services as well as a wage, rather than a welfare check. Following the completion of their community job, participants receive placement assistance and retention services for the first year of unsubsidized employment.

Homeless Employment Collaborative ProgramEdit

In the Homeless Employment Collaborative program, Goodwill, Toolworks, the San Francisco Department of Human Services, and the California Department of Rehabilitation partner to provide a wage-based employment program to General  and maintain unsubsidized employment. During the nine-month to one-year program, participants work either on a Toolworks janitorial crew, in a Goodwill retail store, or in the Goodwill production department. Call (415) 575-2101 for more information or to learn about enrollment requirements or email training@sfgoodwill.org

San Francisco Training Partnership (SFTP)Edit

The San Francisco Training Partnership (SFTP) serves veterans and/or ex-offenders who are homeless San Francisco residents. The program's flexible design allows for customized short-term training, life-skills workshops, paid transitional employment and permanent job placement. The partnership is a collaborative effort that includes Swords to Plowshares, the Northern California Service League, the Urban University, and Goodwill. The SFTP is funded by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is administered locally by the S.F. Department of Human Services.

Work-Based Evaluation Program (WBE)Edit

Goodwill's Work-Based Evaluation (WBE) program provides a gateway to Goodwill's Transitional Employment program. The purpose of WBE is to determine the types of employment and training services that may best benefit participants in gaining and maintaining long-term employment. This is the very first step for some on their journey to becoming self-sufficient. It represents a chance to take stock of where they are, what skills they have, and what their plans are for the future. Goodwill staff guide participants through this process and attempt to find the right match for each individual. Participants whose needs are best met within Goodwill may move on to Transitional Employment within Goodwill.

2013-2014 HAP Manual UpdatesEdit

The 2013-2014 HAP Manual has many changes that are not currently part of SFHomeless.net. The question is whether the wiki or the manual contains the most up to date information. The most efficient way to ensure the wiki has the best information is to add the 2013-2014 HAP Manual text into its respective wiki agency page under a new section “2013-2014 HAP Manual Updates”. It will then be up to future wiki users to determine whether and how to update the agency page with the new information.
