Ready, Willing & Working (RWW) empowers individuals to break the cycles of homelessness, welfare dependency and criminal recidivism through a paid-work rehabilitation program. RWW offers a holistic approach and supportive services that allow participants to achieve permanent self-sufficiency.

Modeled after The Doe Fund’s hugely successful “Ready, Willing & Able” program in New York, RWW provides opportunities to the hardest to serve homeless population — single, able-bodied adults, the majority of whom have histories of incarceration and substance addiction. 70% of participants from Ready, Willing & Working remain employed, independently housed and drug-free after 3 years of entering the program.

RWW is the holistic approach the City needs to provide the Continuum of Care for those who are currently living on the streets, in DC shelters and returning to their neighborhoods after years of incarceration.
