Can worker coops be used to combat homelessness?

Could putting homeless people through a system of rehab getting them fit to work both mentally and physically, followed by putting them in a worker coop with other former homeless people be an effective way to combat homelessness and prevent these people from falling back into the trap of poverty? I feel like this could be a good way to keep people out of poverty because it would put them back on their feet and give them agency in how their work and lives develop, as well as giving them a community of people with similar backgrounds to support them. I also feel this could be addapted to work for immigrants as well with just some minor changes
