Holla! This week, Benefair is introducing our new collection from The Giving Keys, a wonderful social brand that focuses on the issue of homelessness. While we’ve spoken about the issue of homelessness a few weeks ago when we introduced our collection from Sackcloth & Ashes, this time, we want to delve deeper into the various ways we can help alleviate homelessness.

Homelessness is a social issue where systematic forces are at play to prevent individuals from having access to affordable housing. Sometimes, individuals may lack the resources to attain the skills needed to find and retain employment. Although every case of poverty is unique, sometimes a second chance is the key to the door of opportunities for these individuals. Therefore, it is critical to empower the homeless and low-income individuals by providing them with the necessary resources and support to attain these skills. These can be done through holistic programs like Chrysalis’ Transitional Jobs Program that helps clients gain the necessary skills needed to re-enter the job market.

Lookout for our article this Thursday for more the story behind The Giving Keys, an organization that not only supports homelessness through their social business but also empowers the homeless by providing them with meaningful jobs.
