'Work-for-a-day' pilot project

 
April 20th 2017
 

Homeless people in Hawaii are being offered opportunities to do public-service style work to earn some cash. The project has already been piloted in other US cities like Albuquerque, offering jobs like litter-picking and painting over graffiti.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that Hawaii ranks highest among all US states in homelessness numbers.? The work project has been challenged, with critics saying money would be better spent on housing people than making them work.

In response, Josh Green of the Senate Committee on Human Services said: "There is significantly greater cost to doing [housing] as a sole strategy, and there's no reason why we can't do both."
