Our Mission: Helping Homeless Americans Find Jobs

The Department of Labor administers programs providing employment and training services that are crucial components in the comprehensive efforts to address the cycle of homelessness. The Department offers both mainstream and targeted employment-focused programs that help lead to self-sufficiency.

The DOL strategy focuses on helping homeless Americans who want to work or can become job-ready. DOL's objectives are to: 1) provide access to mainstream employment assistance and services, and 2) identify skill needs in today's workforce and address skill deficiencies of this population.
