Description: Ready, Willing & Able provides a working way home for homeless men with long histories of incarceration, addiction, and unemployment.

At the core of this 12 month residential program is paid work - complemented by holistic social services, career training, education, and sobriety support. It is the first and only program that combines paid work with comprehensive services to help men become permanently self-sufficient.

 The 'Men in Blue' as participants in the program are known, have faced extraordinary hardships, but are determined to change their lives and the lives of their families forever. Since 1990, more than 7,200 men have graduated from Ready, Willing & Able with their sobriety, a full-time job, and a permanent home.

The year-long journey through Ready, Willing & Able takes place over four deliberate, structured phases: Commit to Change, Reenter the Community, Build a Career, and Secure Independence.
