Denver Day Works: Press Conference

 

On January 16th the City of Denver held a press conference for the release of the evaluation of the Denver Day Works Pilot Program conducted by The University of Colorado Center on Network Science.

For a little over a year, Bayaud Enterprises has been the non-profit administrator in this private/public partnership with the City of Denver.  The program has been an effort by the City of Denver to provide a low to no-barrier work experience opportunity for people who are experiencing homelessness throughout the city with a specific focus toward engaging those not actively connected to supportive day services. Over the last year, individuals experiencing homelessness and wanting to work were paid for their workday and connected with supportive services including placement into work opportunities with the city and other private employers.
