The VWDB/VJC is participating on a new pilot project called R.I.I.S.E – Regional Immediate Intervention Services for Employment to work with the homeless population at Glendale, Burbank and surrounding areas. Funds for the program come from LA County. The VWDB/VJC is partnered with the parks maintenance section, GYA and the Glendale homeless programs to provide work experience for 13 homeless individuals. This is a short term program, that will end June 30th, 2018.
Information sessions for clients were held in November. Rasheedah Scott is the contact person for this program. Please see her if you have any questions. Click here for flyer and details.
