Riverside at Work

Riverside at Work (RAW) seeks to address homelessness by utilizing partnerships between City departments and key stakeholders to provide vocational training, employment, and other critical services to the homeless population. On-the-job training conducted by various City departments, and community organizations provide participants with, not only an opportunity for stable income, but also valuable life skills, community networks, and potential permanent employment. Implementation of the Housing First model, followed by RAW, help families and individuals end cycles of poverty, and provides job-ready candidates who are prepared for the workplace and motivated to succeed. RAW is funded by Altura Credit Union, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and a CPS HR Consulting Grant.
