Small Sums, a DBA of At Home Group™, is a non-profit organization that helps adults who are homeless or precariously housed remove their barriers to employment. Our clients are individuals who want to work and support themselves and their families. In order to do that, they need tools or uniforms to start their jobs. Small Sums provides these individuals with the resources that they need, giving them the tools to move forward and take ownership of their lives.
Our focus is on helping our clients improve their lives through employment that supports a stable lifestyle. Our partnering organizations provide job placement and other employment services, but a simple expense can prevent a job seeker from getting a job or performing it, or from selling their services. That is where we can help.
The main barriers are:
Bus cards for job access
Required work attire
Tools for trade jobs
Fees for licenses and certification tests
Inexpensive items but they are the difference between employment and homelessness!
