Loring Henderson, executive director of LCS, says case managers at the shelter work with homeless people to sort out their personal problems about finding a job.
They work on overcoming thoughts like "my boss doesn't like me" or "my coworkers are in a different clique that I can't join."
"Who knows what is going through someone's mind who has been unemployed for a long while and is insecure about working again?

LCS provides 21 sleeping spaces, but it's working to add 10 more, says Henderson, LCS director.
Most jobs available to homeless people are short-term, pick-up jobs, Henderson
