TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Some poor, homeless or veterans in Kansas are getting help in
their effort to find new jobs.
Google has provided a Topeka-based nonprofit agency with more
than 900 telephone numbers to be distributed across the state. The
numbers will have a personal voice message inbox to accept calls
from potential employers.
Lazone Grays, who runs the nonprofit IBSA Inc. says the program
helps people who are trying to find a job. For example, someone
living at a homeless shelter wouldn't have to give a rescue
mission's number to an employer.
Those who qualify can check their voice messages from any phone.
And the inboxes won't run out of minutes each month.
Grays tells the Topeka Capital-Journal that IBSA is the first
Kansas agency involved in Google's national Project C.A.R.E
