There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Employment and Training for America's Homeless: Final Report on the Job Training for the Homeless Demonstration Program
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This final report of the homeless demonstration, covering the results of the demonstration from its inception in September 1988 through November 1995, had a two-fold purpose: to analyze the results of the Job Training for the Homeless Program (JTHDP); and, to draw out lessons learned from the demonstration that can help guide future efforts at providing comprehensive and cost-effective services to address the problem of homelessness in the United States. Although particular emphasis was placed on lessons learned in regard to employment and training services, the report covers a wide spectrum of other types of housing and support services often needed to effectively help homeless individuals and families make the transition from homelessness to self sufficiency.
