The National Center on Employment and Homelessness

The National Center on Employment and Homelessness (NCEH) seeks acknowledgement and commitment by providers, policies, and systems, at all levels and geographies, that employment in quality jobs that pay a living wage is a key element for ending homelessness. NCEH seeks to ensure that providers have access to, and understanding of, best practices and evidence-based employment interventions for people experiencing homelessness and that they have the tools and resources to implement them. NCEH seeks to educate and influence decision makers in order to open doors to employment for people experiencing homelessness through all relevant federal legislation, appropriations, and programs.

NCEH and the Connections Project are generously supported by the Oak Foundation and Melville Charitable Trust.

The Connections Project

The Connections Project is a three-year project aimed at finding new systems-level innovations and partnerships in communities nationwide. The goal of the Connections Project is to increase employment and economic opportunity for homeless jobseekers through systems change. Our aim is to spur new ideas and stronger connections among homeless and workforce systems to better connect homeless jobseekers to employment and greater economic opportunity.
