Social services a step towards good jobs

A recent video on the work of the Calgary Drop-in & Rehab Centre shows how getting access to quality social services is an essential first step to finding work for many people.

In addition to providing a place to sleep for roughly 1,200 people a night, the Drop-in Centre provides counselling and employment services. As one person who used the Centre explained, those services allowed him to look for a job that would provide enough to live on, instead of trying to survive on poorly paying, irregular work from Temp Agencies.
