suzanne-profileDear Friends,

Welcome to Project Place. Project Place began in 1967 as a safe haven for youth on the street. We have had over 50 different programs in our almost 50 years tailored to the needs of the individuals experiencing homelessness and joblessness. Today we see over 1,000 men and women cross our threshold each year. At Project Place, we believe the most effective way to break the cycle of homelessness is through a job and housing. But, when someone experiences homelessness, it is particularly difficult to find employment. To this end, we provide housing solutions and a majority of resources are focused on stabilizing people’s lives through employment. Project Place delivers comprehensive work skills and employment education ranging from classroom-based training to supportive transitional employment. Our diverse operations and program staff, many of whom include former clients, work together to support the transition of our clients from homelessness to a life of independence. Central to our success is the investment we make in each person who seeks our help. Case Managers help clients find and secure housing and work with them to address and resolve personal barriers to employment. Instructors and Employment Specialists help teach critical work skills and assist with the job search process. The strong rapport between staff and client enables us to stay connected for years after they complete our programs. Project Place focuses on sustainable solutions to homelessness for each individual and gives them hope for a future of independence. Thank you for visiting our website and thank you for your interest in the work of Project Place. suzannesig Suzanne Kenney Executive Director, Project Place
