Small Sums sole purpose is to help those experiencing homelessness or housing instability, who have found new jobs, with the specific things that they need to start back to work. We believe gainful employment is a key factor in helping individuals secure and maintain stable housing. With our practical and timely assistance, that few other agencies provide, we help remove obstacles that often prevent workers from being able to take a job – like required work clothes and work shoes, trade tools, professional licenses or union dues, and bus passes so they have a reliable way to get to work everyday (until they receive a paycheck).
