On a fundamental level, Labor Day recognizes the dignity of work. That's why today we're featuring our partners at The Other Ones Foundation (TOOF). Their founding program, Workforce First, employs people experiencing homelessness and poverty to clean up parks and remove invasive species. It's paid out more than $300,000 in earned wages since it began in 2018.

But that's not all they do. Watch the video to see how they're Fiercely Focused on ending homelessness. https://www.austinecho.org/blog/2020/09/07/9941/
