Project Restart DBA Housed Working and Healthy

Housed Working and Healthy (HWH) offers free culinary training to individuals experiencing homelessness or housing instability in the Denver Metro area.

The majority of our students do not have transportation nor do they have transit passes.

HWH seeks volunteers who are willing to use their own vehicle to drive 2-3 students to our commercial kitchen at 3525 W. Oxford Avenue (southwest Denver - Fort Lupton campus).

You can find more info here: www.housedworkingandhealthy.org

We need volunteers in the morning - to get students to our kitchen by 9am.

We need volunteers in the afternoon - to bring students back to their temporary housing - after training is complete at 3:30.

Ideally, we would like volunteers who are available several days/week. After you have completed 1-2 'shifts’ we can customize a schedule for you.

If you are interested, send a message to Joanne Bennett - jbennett@housedworkingandhealthy.org - include your location, availability, and contact information. Joanne will contact you to learn about your availability and interests.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help people return to independent living and be self-sufficient. The HWH model is partner based and encompasses housing, mental health services, workforce training and employment. This supportive structure and services helps people stabilize, develop a support network, become trained, gain experience, get a job, secure independent housing and ultimately become self-sufficient. At Housed, Working and Healthy, we have many classes of students working together. From graduates now in the apprentice program, to a new cohort just getting started on their new future. They all have a common goal - learning new skills which will help them get employment.

Description

This program includes a supportive structure and services that help people stabilize, develop a support network, become trained, gain experience, get a job, secure housing and ultimately become self-sufficient.

During this time, local business partners get to know the students. The program facilitates employment opportunities for all students that successfully complete the Apprenticeship.

Students also learn soft skills which are essential to growing in a position. Examples include teamwork, time management, conflict resolution, and stress management.
