Job Training and Education
The Homeless Services Bureau of the Boston Public Health Commission has two paid, hands-on job-training programs, The Work Experience Program and The Serving Ourselves Program. The Homeless Services Bureau also has an educational and employment program, Project Lighthouse, which is available to program clients and emergency shelter guests.
​Each program recognizes an individual’s needs and struggles and seeks to support clients in moving beyond shelter. Clients graduate by first re-entering the workforce and gaining new skills, and then finding independent employment.
To benefit clients in the recovery process a relapse-sensitive approach is taken by offering individual and group substance abuse meetings. Referrals to outside services are also available to these clients as necessary.

The following services are offered to clients:
•Case management
•Physical and mental health services
•Housing placement assistance
•Job search and placement assistance
•Access to private health insurance
•Life skills training
