Willis Dady Works
The Willis Dady Works project will address two major gaps in Linn County:
1) The need for Permanent Supportive Housing for individuals and families coming out of or experiencing homelessness and
2) The need for low-barrier entry-level job positions for people experiencing or near homeless in our community.
The Employment Hub is an expansion of Willis Dady's Employment program. At Willis Dady Works, clients will be able to have workforce training, direct employment opportunities, and on-site business enterprises with supportive case management.

Less than 40% of our clients are employed when they enter services at Willis Dady. Willis Dady Works empowers them to find a good fit for employment and supports their journey to stability.
Next door to the Employment Hub, the Chandler Pump Co. building will contain 13 units of Supportive Housing for individuals and families leaving homelessness. Willis Dady Homeless Services started our Permemant Supportive Program in 2018 to provide housing to individuals with long histories of homelessness and help build self-sufficiency through case management.
