Cooking Up a New Life

Homeless residents show appetite for shelter's Apprentice Chef Program

That emphasis is not crucial just to the apprentice chef program, it is a key aspect of tackling the homeless problem in its entirety, which in Phoenix is largely a question of numbers. According to Louisa Stark, director of Community Housing Partnership, market housing in Phoenix demands a minimum wage of about $11 an hour. Jobs start at little more than half that. Until affordable housing becomes a reality here, solving the homeless problem will take more than matching luckless men and women to help-wanted ads.

It will take programs, and people, like this.
