Overcoming Homelessness Through Employment Readiness
2011 Pinnacle Award Winner

    
 
The San Antonio Human Resource Management Association (SAHRMA) collaborated with two key entities in the San Antonio Community:

(1) Haven for Hope which is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of homeless men, women, and children by addressing the root causes of homelessness through education, job training, and behavioral health services. Source: www.havenforhope.org

(2) SAMMinistries which is an interfaith ministry whose mission is to help the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless attain self-sufficiency by offering, with dignity and compassion, shelter, housing, and services. Source: www.samm.org

SAHRMA took the opportunity to identify the need for HR knowledge in reference to providing services to assist with job training. Job training included facilitating instructor led training sessions focused on proper interviewing skills in addition to conducting mock interviews while offering candid constructive feedback to homeless people who were trying to transition back into the workforce.
