Jobs for panhandlers
This is an article about an inspiring program in Albuquerque to give day jobs (sometimes leading to more stable work) for panhandlers. It has apparently been a great success in terms of getting homeless people into productive work and linked to vital services. It represents a major departure from the approach of far too many cities, which are criminalizing homelessness instead of working to help the homeless.
