Small Sums is a charitable organization whose sole purpose is to help homeless individuals, who have found jobs, with the specific things that they need to start back to work. We believe gainful employment is a key factor in helping homeless individuals get out of their homeless situation. With our practical and timely assistance, that few other agencies provide, we remove obstacles that often prevent homeless workers from being able to take a job – like required work clothes and shoes, trade tools, professional licenses or union dues, and/or bus passes so they have a reliable way to get to work every day (until they receive a paycheck). Small sums clients live in shelters, on the streets, in cars, or temporarily with friends, family or in other housing that is unstable, often bouncing from place to place, while trying to find a way to get into a place of their own. Small Sums partners with referring organizations that serve the poor and homeless in MN to provide clients with simple necessities for work, often within 24-72 hours of receiving their application. The majority of these items cost less than $150 per worker.
