November 16, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Homeless individuals in San Francisco who hope to secure jobs got a boost today as leading nonprofit Community Housing Partnership announced the re-launch of its employment training and job placement social enterprise, according to a press release.

Solutions SF, formerly known as CHP-Enterprises, will build on its three years of successfully providing jobs for some of the hardest-to-employ members of society as it repositions itself with a new leader, a fresh brand identity and more opportunities than ever for both customers and employees, the release stated.

According to the release, with its three business lines, Solutions SF not only employs those who have endured homelessness, but also generates earned revenue for Community Housing Partnership, the enterprise’s affiliate nonprofit that builds permanent, affordable housing with support services for formerly homeless individuals and families.

"With its foundation firmly established and with its new identity and structure, Solutions SF is well-positioned to appeal to a wider range of customers," said Solutions SF''s new director, Laurie Bernstein.

"Not only do our business lines deliver solutions for customers — providing lobby staffing, maintenance and bedbug solutions — but we also offer a tangible solution to a difficult problem: Helping those who have lived on the street to re-engage in society with a job and a caring community," Bernstein added.
