Homeless and Low-Income
Project Place works to support people experiencing homelessness and/or poverty. We are a supportive and inclusive community that wants to help open pathways to jobs, housing, and hope. To accomplish this we offer a range of services including job training, supportive case management, housing assistance, and more.
Court Involved and Incarcerated
People who have a history of incarceration, whether they just released or have been out for a while, can face extra difficulties trying to find a job. For people soon to be released, having a path forward is very important. Project Place works with the Suffolk County House of Correction and will help develop that path. For others, who have a criminal record but have already released, we help build skills, fill in employment gaps, and work on how to frame your past to make it work for you, not against you.
In Recovery from Substance Abuse
90 day sobriety is required to be able to participate in our Work Ready and later job training. To anyone recovering from substance use, client or not, we offer a variety of resources to help them stay on track with recovery efforts. Setbacks are a natural part of the process and we’re here to help.
Women come to Project Place from a variety of backgrounds. We provide a safe space, mentoring, education, and training to women experiencing poverty or homelessness who want to find employment and stability. We offer several programs specifically to women to help them achieve their goals.
Project Place has dedicated Veterans Services staff to address the issues around the return to civilian life that many veterans face. Returning vets need support beyond the usual case management, and we make sure they get it here. Case managers work with the Veterans Administration system to determine eligibility and help veterans receive benefits and connect them with veteran-friendly businesses.
